Update on the timing of the SPAR Streets of Dublin 5K 2018.Thank you for your participation in the SPAR Streets of Dublin 5k.
As you are likely aware due to a technology issue there has been a delay in issuing results for the SPAR Streets of Dublin 5k.
Athletics Ireland has worked together with our timing partners since Sunday and made every effort possible to recover participants race times. Unfortunately after recovering some times and to our great disappointment, we are unable to recover the remaining results.
Unfortunately a proportion of the timing chips were encoded incorrectly and as a result the correct information (i.e. start time/finish time) cannot be retrieved from the chip when scanned. Regrettably this timing issue only became apparent once the run was finished.
Due to some omitted and inaccurate race results from the SPAR Streets of Dublin 5K, we cannot identify the winners of the age categories prizes. We feel that the best decision in this situation is to roll over the age category prizes (Male and Female 35+, 45+ 55+, 65+) to the next event in the Athletics Ireland Race Series. This will mean that the Irish Runner 5 Mile master categories prize fund has doubled. Although we recognise this isn’t the situation we wanted, we believe it is currently the fairest decision for all our participants.
Again, we would like to emphasise that we are putting measures in place to make sure this technology issue will not happen for the next two races in the Athletics Ireland Race Series and any future events.
For all available results please visit our website http://www.athleticsireland.ie/runzone/streets-of-dublin/. If you haven’t received your race time or if you think your race time is inaccurate or omitted please contact Titan Sports who may be able to help you further. Please email Jason Moloney on firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
Finally, we would like to take this opportunity to thank all the participants to took part in the SPAR Streets of Dublin 5k. We appreciate your support and patience throughout this process.
