Just wondering how a USATF course can be certified as a championship event if the course is actually not what it is advertised to be. A friend of mine had her Garmin on during the race and it came out to 15.19 km, not 15.0 km
Is USATF trying to keep American or course records from being broken in order to keep from paying bonus money? Or has the race always been measured long and USATF just wants to be consistent in order to be fair to past performances? I didn't realize this going into the race and was just curious if anybody knows the answer to this.
On the plus side it looks like myself and all the other participants ran faster than we thought:)
If anybody has any insight here please share. Thanks!!
