SIOUX FALLS (AP) — The Sioux Falls Sports Authority has apologized after a number of runners in the city's marathon over the weekend complained about long waits for shuttles at the conclusion of the race.

Race organizers encouraged runners to use the shuttles from the finish line back to their cars at the marathon's starting point because of limited parking at the finishing area. The Argus Leader newspaper reports  that some runners who were dehydrated or overheated had to wait as long as an hour for a shuttle.

Sports Authority Executive Director Wes Hall says the plan was inadequate. He says officials will learn from it and try to make improvements for future marathons.
