The results and prize-winners for the Kearney Cycles Streets of Galway 8K road-race for 2014 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 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.
Galway City Harriers is an athletics club based in Galway city, Ireland, catering for senior and juvenile athletes. Founded in 1899, GCH has been to the forefront of athletics in Ireland throughout the 20th century and many famous athletes have represented both club and country in track and field, cross-country and road competitions.
The Conamara 10k promises to be one of the most scenic road races in Ireland, starting in Carna village, crossing the islands of Roisín an Chaladh and Muighnis, before reaching the turnaround point at Muighnis graveyard and heading back to Carna.
As well as being a stunningly beautiful route, the coastal run is flat and ideal for PBs. The race, organised by the Conamara club, TríSpórt, will be chip-timed and refreshments will be provided afterwards in Carna Bay Hotel.
The Conamara 10k will be open to runners, joggers and walkers. There will also be a number of fun runs for children.
