Marathon Organizers Send Runners An Extra Half-Mile
For some runners, the Maine Coast Marathon was bit longer than expected. A group of participants was accidentally sent down an dead end road and had to loop back around, tacking on a half-mile to their route.
An this ended up being more than just an annoyance. The extra distance means some of their times most likely won't qualify the runners for the next Boston Marathon.
Since not all the runners had to go the extra half-mile, the times can't simply be adjusted. Instead, those who don't qualify for Boston Marathon because of the mistake will get a refund.
