A controversy surrounds the finish to the 10K run during the Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon. A wrong turn sent about 200 runners in the 10K race the wrong way Sunday. So instead of running 6 miles, they ran 9 miles. That means the person who won the race may not be the real winner.

Race organizers are trying to figure out who should really get the cash prizes. Race officials will attempt to determine the number of runners who ran off course and plan to extend prize money to top finishers affected by the error. Call it "Wrong Turn 3"
