This is just a reminder that on Sunday October 1st, there will be runners participating in the Mother Road Marathon. The race begins at 7 am and will enter Galena on the West bound lane of  7th  Street (US 66) heading East to Main. From 7th they will head North on main to Front Street and then East on Front to Stateline continuing into Missouri.

North Main Street will be close  from Front Street to 7th for this event, and the West bound lane of 7th (US 66) form Main all the way to Riverton will be reduced to one lane.

This event should be complete by 1:30 PM Sunday afternoon.

We would like to thank all residents for their cooperation during this time and encourage them to come out to watch and cheer on the runners.


World Record Holder Stop’s in Galena

On September 24, 2016 Danielle Girdano stopped by the Galena Police Department to show her appreciation as she traveled from Chicago to Santa Monica setting a new World Record.
It’s official: Danielle has brought the title back to America and beat the World Record by 21 days! First Responders For Fitness coordinated the Law Enforcement and Fire Departments along Route 66 and we thank all of our brothers & sisters for their overwhelming support.
