This year we had 120 amazing people taking on a tough personal challenge for ACT; to train for and run “The Streets of Galway 8k”. This was an 8 week training programme under the professional guidance of Don Naughton Fitness in Galway, during which all participants met twice a week and were put through their paces to get to the fitness level required to take on this race.
The race took place on Saturday the 8th of August and even with the wet conditions on the night, TeamACT were out in force and thanks to our Running Top Sponsors, Mr Waffle and Monroes Live, a sea of blue ran the streets of Galway accompanied, as always, by the very energetic ACTion Ted and crossed this finish line raising vital awareness and much needed funds for the charity.
For some this was their very first time running and for others it was an opportunity to improve their fitness and beat their personal bests, but for everyone it was a chance to learn new skills, make new friends, and lead a new healthier & fitter lifestyle. We are most grateful to every single member of our wonderful and hard working Team ACT, our trainers Don and Andy and the race organisers Galway City Harriers for what was a truly amazing experience, and we are so looking forward to next years “8 weeks to 8k” already. #TeamACT #TogetherWeCanMakeAdifference
