Of course, I know it's point to point.... with slight course changes now since back then.

But, is it really "net downhill"?

Mile 2 goes down.... but you ever raced miles 3-6 with all those uphills? At the toughest place in the race, if you are getting "low" in the gas tank? The heat, humidity, and hills... usually result in slower times than a flat course... except for rare occasions. (like today?)


ARRS states: "Acceptable for rankings, not record quality. Point-to-point course with net drop of 3.5 m/km": https://more.arrs.run/race/22745
They still could have included your time with an asterisk though as they e.g. did for Lornah Kiplagat's now old course record (https://www.iaaf.org/athletes/netherlands/lornah-kiplagat-115229), I just guess their database isn't complete enough (yet).
