Track and share your training!

Dailymile makes it easy to keep track of your workouts. Map your routes and share with a community of active people.

for all Wichita senior 5k participants, Clark Ensz wrote an apology saying the course was 0.175 miles short due to a small shortcut. Still awesome times at the race! But now it's not a certified course.

    Now I feel like a fraud! At least I didn't cut the course.

    Oh darn, I had thought so. The conditions were already tough then everyone was having incredible PRs. After announcing several amazing times, our eyebrows started raising...

    That sucks. Pretty awesome they acknowledged it and owned up to it though. I haven't seen that before and have been in some races where the Garmin measured noticeably short.

    certified course, chip timed event, and hosed-up wrapped into one, bummer! I guess Winston and I will be looking for a fair-weather 5k so we can redeem ourselves and push 18:00 "legitimately".

    Sorry your PRs were DQd. They just can't seem to get those 5k's down right. PF was long, this one short. Make a good case for sticking to longer races. Margin of error is less.

    I still can't help but feel ashamed for announcing that I'd set a PR on a "certified" course, only to find out it wasn't a certified course after all. I really thought I'd done something special in that wind and heat last night. Now, I just feel embarrassed.
