The official results are now out. Seems as if they've shaved off a few more precious seconds off our first published chip times. And the detour is now 0.23 miles instead of 250m unofficially. At this rate, I should get a GFA for London by the end of May
Hi Sleeply Lion, where did you see the detour is 0.23 miles?
On the Race Distance page of the MK Marathon website:
Dave P: Thanks. Yes it was a PB for me (a large one) & my first time under 3 hours, so I am delighted! Didn't think it was on in that weather but just decided to run as planned anyway and it came off.
SL: Those results look a little confusing now, still if I have got an extra 44 seconds off I won't complain. I wonder if they will be officially recognised and it will be updated on power of 10?
On the downside though as i was so happy after the race I ordered the i-tab & official photos, they all say my old time!
This about sums up how I felt, stupid dry photographer sitting under the bridge with his flask of coffee *frown*
Never been so happy to see a finish line in all my life, well when I eventually worked out where the fecking thing was anyway
Unless the updated results are going to be officially recognised they should leave it
They won't change the results. Recognising the extra length of the race is all they are doing . The only time you have is the time for the race NOT the time for 26.2 miles. In this case the race is longer than 26.2 miles. Feel free to approximate an exact marathon distance time for yourselves but nothing will change.
