This week, our course was officially measured and USATF certified! Why is this important?
“The purpose of the USATF course certification program is to produce road race courses of accurately measured distances.
For any road running performance to be accepted as a record or be nationally ranked, it must be run on a USATF-certified course. In addition, the certification program is very important to the average road racer, as well as those of exceptional speed. Most runners like to compare performances run on different courses, and such comparisons are difficult if course distances are not reliable. No one can truly establish a personal best if the course distance is not accurate.” source: USATF.org
We love our course and we want to make sure that it is the most efficient and safe course for our runners. We are excited to invite you out again to join us in JUNE for our 4th annual Run Ella Run Memorial 5k. Lace up those shoes and join us race day!
