Once again, the streets of Galway came very much alive last Saturday evening with the sights and sounds of 2000+ runners, joggers and walkers assembling to take part in the city’s largest annual road-race. This year’s race was the 27th annual edition of the ever popular event, which is hosted by city-based Galway City Harriers Athletics Club in association with title sponsors, Corrib Oil.

The Streets Of Galway 8K Road-Race (by The Unknown Marshall)
1. The race-route (although it has not changed significantly since the race-start/finish de-camped from Eyre Square to the Claddagh in 2004), is measured and marked again uniquely every year. This is to allow for any changes in road-surface (through re-surfacing, change in road-camber, etc.) that may have taken place in the intervening period.
The results and prize-winners for the Corrib Oil Streets of Galway 8K road-race for 2011 have now been ratified as final and can be deemed official. No further correspondence can be entered into at this point. The appropriate updated files are attached below with one material change to the list of prize-winners. On a countback, the Mayo AC ladies have been awarded second place in the female team prize. A belated well done girls!

Special thanks to John O'Connor, Conrad Conneely and the athletes themselves - especially the Raheny gang, for helping us out with that! All other prizes will be posted out in the coming days. There are some fine performances amongst them.
[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.
