RE: .2 miles = how many meters?
Clubmembers who work on the administration of the races these days generally do not come from a technical running background and do a great job of getting the blanket manufacture on for sponsorship and dealing with the logistics of a million water cups etc. The ,to them subtle, difference between 26.2 and 26/385 is lost.
We runners tend to forget that the operational thrust of Event Marathons are focused on dealing with the large number of fitness runners and their care. Only a relatively few of the people working on it deal with the true front of the pack "race" aspect.
But that should not have slipped thru.
