Hill/Trail Run near Galway City.
|Michael McSweeney||Mar 22 2023, 10:37pm||I'm in Galway Thursday and Friday and the runners are in the van.|
Anywhere within striking distance of Galway City for a handy hill/trail run tomorrow evening?
I stopped in Coole Park Nature Reserve on the way up. Nice spot for a run, but not a hill in sight.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

There aren't many hilly trails in/around the city, but Knockma Hill (about 30 mins outside the city) might suit. It's a short enough route (4/5km) on forest trail, but it's nice for a few loops.
All the best,
