Course to be certified with Athletics Canada

This weekend our Collingwood Half Marathon and 10k courses get measured for certification with Athletics Canada. Think your running GPS is accurate? Guess again! Many racers have commented in other races that the course is too long because their GPS shows 21.3 or some longer distance. The truth is that we use 3 cyclists with calibrated distance measuring wheels attached, the distance being averaged between the three. This is the only method accepted by Athletics Canada. It is very accurate!
