I agree Seren, but as they said their certicficate was valid for 5 years. Personally I would have looked into it after the 1st year.

Wow, what a day at the races!

A very good time considering everything Speedy.

Sorry you had a DNS Jools - a very tough decision to make.

Good running LB70 - a tough day by the sounds of it.

Glad you enjoyed the day SSC - still a respectable time.

Congratulations on a great PB Lorenzo, G-Dawg & Moof

Good time Poacher just 2 weeks after manchester

00 - So close to a sub 3, ab it like the winner just missing out on the World record - can you believe how quick he was. I think he should have fallen at the beginning

Top time Literatin - very impressive.

The Purple fairy had a good day today and came home in 2.52.xx

To be fair to the organisers, it's not their fault. It is the fault of AUKCM who were using faulty equipment. The organisers were relying on the official certification from an external independent body.

Not good news G-Dawg, I saw this earlier on Facebook from the AUKCM body that officially measure routes. Looks like it was their fault and to be fair not the Manchester marathon organiser fault. They were reliant on the result of the official certificate.

I'm just glad I got a PB this year on the correct distance. I see Power of 10 has also reclassified the result from the last 3 years 2013, 2014, 2015 to now call it SHORT MARATHON.

True, this has nothing to do with the Organizers as they are relying on an independent body to ”officially” measure it.

However, surely with feedback from a lot of runners over 3 years, surely they might have questioned the length, and thought, hang on, let's get this checked to be sure?

Does this open a legal can of worms?

Here's the BBC new story:

Another embarrassment for the organisers. I wonder what they will say about this?

I agree about all the PB's recorded there in these doubtful years, that it is a shame they have been rescinded by Power of 10. 3 years of it being short is a bad error in my opinion especially a big city marathon. Do you think they will have their Best marathon of the year award taken back now it wasn;t a full marathon?

I'm glad this year I ran a PB of 03.03.03 on the full course, but leaves a dark cloud over this marathon. There were lots of issues this year with the traffic management (lack of), baggade queues at the end (2 hours wait) and now this. A PR disaster!

Explains the last minute move of the finish to the Cricket ground AWC (which was unprepared for the baggage/amount of people finishing and the bottle neck!
