According to race officials some male and female pros have run off course. Not sure how this even happens in a sanctioned WTC event, but it could prove difficult to determine the winners unless of course they all ran off course. However this does not appear to be the case as the first ones across the finish line were not in contention before the mix-up.

The first unofficial male pro across the finish line was Canadian Mikael Staer Nathan. He was about 15 minutes behind the leader at the start of the run. Actually the top five finishers were far back in the field when the run began. This indicates that they ran a shorter course than the true leaders.

The leaders early on in the race were Americans Davide Giardini and Matt Hanson. They were far ahead of the unofficial top five finishers.

***Official results will be posted on this page once things are sorted out. This could take a while.***
