The Sunset Trail event at Sledmere last week was a great success with many factors coming together to create an enjoyable, fantastic evening for runners, supporters and their families.
However, we would like to recognise the significant error that unfortunately took place.
Due to a Marshalling error and some moved signage, some runners went the wrong way creating a mixed field of runners resulting in deep frustration and an impact to varied results in placings.
Driffield Striders deeply regrets this situation and apologises to all those affected by this error and we have ensured that steps have been put in place going forward.
We thank all entrants, supporters, volunteers, and families for their participation on Friday evening and wish to assure you that this very regrettable incident will not happen again.
Driffield Striders Race Director and Sunset Trail Committee
