Chaos abounds after race’s wrong turn

‘Runners in Ohio’s Rite Aid Cleveland 10K race on Sunday found themselves running several extra miles after mistakenly being diverted by race officials.

A police officer along the route reportedly redirected the car leading the runners and that wrong turn added nearly three miles to the 6.1-mile event, the Cleveland Plain Dealer said.

Adding to the racers’ woes were some misplaced traffic cones along the route and a major bottleneck created by several walking marathon participants.

After the chaotic race was finally completed, race officials were at a loss to determine how well each participant did.’
