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.
