He has produced something similiar again for this year's race creating the following data-analysis library based on recorded finish-times for SOG 2012. As per: SOG - 2012

[acidfree:4819 size=250 align=right title=""]I was wondering what heading to put on this story, and this is the only one that seems to fit! Runners love their numbers and and as a group they probably like statistics more than most. Finish times, chip times, interval pace, last year's times, next year's predictions, kilometre splits, wind speeds.. you get the idea.

Streets of Galway 2010 Race Report

The 2010 Streets of Galway 8k Road Race took place on Saturday evening last from Southpark in the Claddagh. This was the 25th anniversary of this road race around the city’s streets, which is organised and hosted by the local Galway City Harriers Athletic Club. The event was first staged in 1986 as an initiative of Cospoir, the predecessor to today’s Irish Sports Council, with organisers Jack Mahon and Mick Roche among others. The ethos from the start to the present day has been “sport for all”, and today the race attracts runners of all standards and ages from all over Ireland - from elite international athletes, to athletic club runners, competitors from other sports, joggers and walkers. 2010 entries were a sell-out and a massive 2144 official finishers were recorded crossing the line at Nimmo’s Pier.

When the bus full of stewards, each with their map and instructions, left the Claddagh at 6:15pm the excitement was starting to build. Warm-ups were underway, the weather was great and the place was abuzz. Oliver Geraghty and Eamonn O’Donnell began the job of getting the runners to the start on time, and at 7:00pm sharp the gun was fired.
