Streets of Galway
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.
After review and consultation, an update has now been applied to the female prize-list for last Saturday's Kearney Cycles Streets of Galway 8K road-race for 2014. In summary, the changes are as follows:
- athletes assigned positions 6 (six), 7 (seven) and 8 (eight) previously in the overall women's finishing order have now been adjusted to reflect actual finishing times;
- athletes assigned positions 1 (one) and 2 (two) in the F45 category previously have now also been adjusted as a direct result of the changes applied in the above.
A provisional set of results and prize-winners for the Kearney Cycles Streets of Galway 8K road-race for 2014 are attached below.

Many thanks to regular streets competitor Gerard Conway who has once again supplied us with a full-blown statistical analysis of this year's race using TIBCO Spotfire data-analysis software - as per: SOG - 2013. This data can be sliced and diced in any number of ways so you can enjoy comparing your performance with various peer-groups.
The Kearney’s Cycles Streets of Galway Organizing Committee wants to thank you all those people who volunteered their time to ensure that this year’s race was a great success. We estimate that up to 200 people helped us on August 9 and August 10 including 80 people who volunteered as race marshalls, over 40 people who helped to distribute at the 5K mark and at the finish, and 30 people who helped us to distribute the race packs in a timely and efficient manner.

Something Old, Something New
The 28th running of the Streets of Galway 8K road-race (sponsored by local company Kearney Cycles) will take place this year at 7pm on the evening of Saturday 10th August next.
As per usual, all participants will be treated to the usual exciting night of road-racing through the streets of Galway city and suburbs. First-timers and returning entrants alike however, should note some minor changes to the course this year to allow for recent alterations to the road-configuration in the Claddagh area of our city.
