Register & Train now for the NUI Galway 8k


On Your Marks

The NUI Galway 8k is back: Saturday 10th October at 10am

Register HERE today – entry is €25 which all goes to Jigsaw Galway.

Ask any of the 600+ participants last year – this race is not to be missed!

The 8k is run in association with the Kingfisher Club, with all proceeds going to Jigsaw Galway, a charity that supports the mental health and wellbeing of young people in Galway. The NUI Galway 8k and Jigsaw Galway are proudly supported by Aerogen.

The event is open to everyone – runners and walkers of all fitness levels – with a flat, traffic-free route around the University campus and along the banks of the Corrib. The course is measured by Athletics Ireland, and all participants are chipped. There will be fun activities for kids on the day – so bring the family.

Get Set

To help you prepare for the 8k, the Kingfisher Club is organising a number of Meet & Train events open to everyone:

8k Meet & Train Sessions

Mondays & Wednesdays at 1pm & 6pm

Meet at Kingfisher Reception – changing facilities available

Get updates on these sessions and more on Facebook.


Join in the fun – there’s nothing stopping you.
