Please note below a decision that we have had to take and provided by our Race Referee on the day.

“In the U17 mens race at Match Two, a number of athletes did not follow the marked course and substantially shortened the designated distance per issued and displayed maps. Having spoken with athletes, some of the team managers and, in particular, course marshals, I am satisfied that there was no misleading advice given by either designated marshals or officials. Accordingly, it is my final decision that the 9 athletes concerned (all male) be disqualified and their positions and times not be recorded in the race result”.
