RE: Why are "point-to-point" courses not record eligible?
I agree. The terminology - "point to point" & "loop" is not totally accurate and confusing to nearly everyone.
Technically, within the sport a "point to point" course has the start and finish 50% or greater of the total distance when measured in a straight line. And a "loop" course is less then 50%
Boston is over 90%
New York is approximately 48%
Regardless, it would be a good idea to change the terminology.
