sorry... 900 meters cannot be correct. If start location was same as always (and it was) the MOST the distance could have changed would be about 1000 feet (305 meters). I used google maps to measure distance between where the '18 finish line was and where I recall the 'normal' finish line would be and came up with a range of between 900 and 1000 feet. my GPS data from the race aligns with this estimate.

Lesson: Donít listen to others when you know better!
It is 900ft.

yep... been there, read that...


"The decision was made to move the finish line approximately 900 feet (0.17 miles) back along the course, where all athletes will now finish on the bay side of the DECC."


the critical word for me is the tenth word in their description, "approximately".

being an anal retentive engineer... I want "EXACTLY"... the fourth word in my question. I have no good reason for wanting to know other than just wnating to know!

I highly doubt any official (exact) measurements were made of the new course. This reminds me that a first timer drove the course this year in preparation. She was surprised on race day that the big START line on the pavement was not the start line (which with significance [to her] moved the start onto a bigger downhill). I'm guessing that START line is for Grandma's marathon? In that case, I doubt Northshore is certified as a marathon distance like running marathons are. Getting an exact measurement of the change this year would still leave the question of exactly how long the course has been other years (though maybe that is not relevant to why you were asking for an exact distance in the first place)?
