As a few people have pointed out the course did come up short on distance and we would like to apologise for this. We took over the course marking for this event for the Lynda Jackson Macmillan Centre and we take full responsibility for the error.
We still need to investigate the matter but we used a GPS app to measure the course and it has incorrectly shown the distance to be 10k. We did have to pause the app at one stage of the measurement and this is the only thing we can think of at this stage. If anyone has any data for us in terms of where the km markers got out of sync we would be very interested to hear it.
Obviously this will be resolved for the event next year. Hopefully this didn’t dampen your spirits too much and that you still enjoyed the event.
As some sort of compensation then if you are interested we would like to offer you 50% off the entry price for our 10k event at Kempton Park Racecourse on Sunday 7 October 2018. If you are interested, visit the Kempton Park Chase website and enter using voucher code MOORPARK.
