Why did my GPS record a distance that is different from the official race course distance?
The race course is measured along the inside of all corners to reflect the shortest possible distance a runner could cover in completing the race without being disqualified. If your GPS recorded a longer distance, it probably includes wide corners, weaving through the field, and diversions to aid and relief stations.
