who ran the furthest compared to their garmin
Mine was showing .05 of a mile over by about mile 10, .10 by mile 12 and .30 by 18. Think it finished at about 26.6 something but will check when I get home. It was really doing my head in!
EDIT: Just remembered I didn't turn it off when I finished and it was still going 20 mins later so it'll have some daft distance on it, had to text my sister to confirm my time ...
Mine finished at 26.73......I did try and follow the blue line but it was impossible!
Two years ago at London mine recorded 27.16, I felt like running a bit further to claim an ultra!
@Liverbird - When I was going through the finish point I overhead two policemen saying "if this is anything to go by for the Olympics - we're f***ked". On some parts it was the "trial" for the security measures etc.
For me the mile markers were ok but they started to get more "out" around Mile 11/12
So relieved it was not just me! My garmin has 26.45.
