Upon investigation, it was learned that there was an internal miscommunication regarding the details leading to the withdrawl of Severin Cathry.
In a post-incident review due to Cathry's current performance on the trail, Race Marshal Doug Harris contacted Trackleaders to confirm the call for assistance and was informed no SOS was ever sent by Cathry.
Due to these findings, Cathry remains a competitor in the race.
Cathry's race is unaffected as he is unaware of this situation.
The organization understands the severity of the error and a full debrief upon race completion will be conducted to avoid incidents such as this in the future.
