Car Guiding Cleveland Race Sent Wrong Way
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep. Some competitors racing in Cleveland must have thought it was the toughest 10 kilometers ever. The race was supposed to be a little over six miles. A car was supposed to lead the way along the proper route. But race officials say at one point the police officers sent the car the wrong way. Between 200 and 300 racers followed after, adding an extra 2.7 miles to the route that they had to run through Cleveland. And some of the results may now have to be changed.
