During stage 2 Stroese Zand a tragic accident occured. A runner in M21E dropped down during his race and passed away later. Several runners stopped their own races to provide first aid until medical services arrived.

OLV MINOR has together with the IOF Event adviser taken the decision to cancel the race. The WRE for M21 Elite is also canceled because of these circumstances according to the IOF Competition Rules, paragraf 26.13; the organiser must void a race if circumstances have arisen which make the race significantly unfair.

The WRE for W21 Elite is not canceled.
