How did they do that! You could understand it happening with someone in the lower places, but how can you get the 1st finisher wrong
They were just having a chat, didn’t have the results phone set up yet. All good though, I might’ve been a bit saltier if I was actually trying to put down a good time
classic parkrun whinge, did you stop your watch when the gps hit 5km as well?
I stop my watch when it ticks over the PB I want
From the Parkville parkrun website
: "The course is 5000m (5K) long. This has been accurately measured by us with a professional measuring wheel."
Does that mean your gps actually said 4.97? I wouldn’t be surprised with you
It was 5.02km for me the previous week
That is a stitch up considering the winning time there is usually in the 15/16 range, they should have known someone was due soon. It's not like the timekeeper has much else to do except press the lap button every time someone crosses the line!
