Macau marathon ?
seems this year a few minor issues with the Macau marathon . The earlier start was no problem but right at the start of the race when we left the stadium I am not sure if we were led the wrong way but we ran staright into a barrier acorss the road . Then the first 1k marker was at least 2k plus. after that all the kilometre markers were inaccurate . the gap between the 37 and 38 was only about 500m.....
i know people will argue different but my garmin put the route at 43.8k .... I was also using a Polar GPS which put the course as 44.1K . I estimate from my pacing the course was about 43K .
Its also a bit annoying to be stopped several times to allow traffic . Either the road is closed or its not.
No big deal unless of course it meant that you failed to get your PB or failed to finish within 5hrs !!
I guess even the organisers knew there was something wrong as they were not very strict at the 35K cut off and allowed many runners to go through beyond the 4hrs 15 cut off .
never mind . I will mark this as an ultra marathon haha
