Leeds Race Results Update
Explanation of voided legs on courses 1-4 and subsequent reinstatement of legs on course 2 and 4
During the event I was informed that several competitors had reported that a workman at the barrier near control 197 was letting some competitors running south to north (i.e. on courses 1 or 3) through the barrier. This would have given a considerable time advantage to these competitors. In view of these reports it was decided on the day to remove all legs where the passage was the most obvious route to or from control 197. This affected courses 1-4.
Post race analysis of the provisional results shows that on courses 2 and 4 there are no split times on the leg from control 197 that would suggest competitors were going through the barrier in a north south direction and so in the light of no evidence that the problem affected the outcome on courses 2 and 4 the leg has been reinstated. The results will be republished to include the leg.
The voiding of the leg on courses 1 and 3 stands.
