Email from Race Director in response to going the wrong way last year...
"Matias, thank you so much for your feedback.
I was made aware of this issue, unfortunately, during the race, and we immediately tried to remedy the situation. You are correct. We needed a better plan for our course marshals, and yes, we did need a volunteer there to direct people.
We have discussed the situation on our committee and are already putting a plan in place to ensure this does not happen again next year---we DO understand how this happened, so that at least is a start to ensure it DOESN”T happen again.
We are so happy to have runners like you participate in this event, and we want to ensure that our runners are happy and would run the race again in the future. We also really appreciate having Pacers work with us on the management and logistics of the race, and we know that this was not an ideal or typical situation for them to be working in, either- please be assured that Pacers and the GWBCC will work together to have an even better race next year. We are considering changing the course for next year, which also may alleviate some confusion (it’s more of a cross-country track kind of course right now), but we are also examining better direction for our volunteers.
Please feel free to share any feedback, positive or negative, with us, as we WILL take everything into consideration as we plan for next year."
Guess what happened this year? Same exact &$%! turn.
