To all participants:Luckily the course was elongated. If the error went the other way and the course was shortened it would no longer have been a certified course! Sheesh! While a 1/2 marathon is 13.1094 miles, the CDC course was extended approximately .1668 of a mile to 13.2762 miles. Ultimately this is good news, it means everyone's actual 1/2 Marathon time was even better than they thought :)
It has come to our attention that the 2008 course was incorrectly certified. Athletes' paces have been adjusted to reflect the actual course distance of 13.2762. Finishing times have not been changed. See below for more details.
As for the pics, they are still being "indexed". I will keep checking and post them as soon as they are available!
