Organizers of the 7 Bridges Marathon announced that they would be changing its name to “6 Bridges Marathon” after it made an error when counting the number of bridges.
“We were certain that we had the right number of bridges,” said director Gavin Pawket. “I used the fingers on both of my hands.”
“I counted this many bridges,” said Pawket, while holding up seven fingers.
This announcement came several days after organizers admitted to another error, involving the course length for the half marathon event held last Sunday which was over half a mile shorter than the correct length, which meant that the runners’ times were all invalid.
“The plan is to change the name, which means that we will have to change all of our logos and signs,” said Pawket. “We would be thrilled if someone just constructed another bridge instead.”
