Message from Bideford AAC (Bideford Half)

04/03/2009 09:20:39

On behalf of Bideford AAC I would be grateful if you would pass on our apologies to all of your club members who took part in the 15th Bideford Half Marathon last Sunday.
Whilst the course had been accurately measured and marked, our marshals at one of the first turns failed to direct runners correctly which resulted in the route distance being increased by an estimated 0.3 miles. We appreciate that this error will have caused confusion and that some of your club runners may have missed an opportunity for a PB or qualifying time as a result. We cannot undo what has happened but we will certainly endeavour to ensure that it never happens again. Karen Curry (Race Director) has taken advice from Paul Ross at Devon County Athletics who has advised that because all runners followed the same course the results will stand.
Once again, our apologies for the error which has occurred.
Regards,
Doug
Bideford AAC
