- 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.
Two PDF files of the initial results data have been generated, the first one sorted by finish (race/gross) time (and from which official results and prize-winners will be calculated) and a second one sorted by chip (nett) time for information purposes only. A provisional list of individual category and team prize-winners is presented in the third attachment.
