The results and prize-winners for the Kearney Cycles Streets of Galway 8K road-race for 2015 have been declared official and are attached below. The decision of the race organising committee is final in all matters and no further correspondence can or will be entered into at this point.
Two PDF files of the final results have been generated, the first one sorted by finish (gross) time (and from which official results and prize-winners are calculated) and a second one sorted by chip (nett) time for information purposes only. A final list of individual category and team prize-winners is presented in the third attachment. Note - an adjustment has been applied to both F40 and F45 prize-categories to ensure that the correct finishers are credited with the appropriate prize in each case.
