    I tracked my race time on MapMyRun (as I always do when I run) and my race time and MapMyRun time and distance conflicted. MapMyRun stats were 27.32 miles/8:29 minute miles (which correlates with my pre-race run times). RaceWire stats were 26.2 miles/8:50 minute miles. I found the course confusing whereas it was designed as a “Loop Run” X 6. There was limited direction and structure and I’m pretty sure I went off course somewhere on the course reflecting my mileage (27.32 miles). I submitted a screenshot of my stas from MapMyRun to RaceWire and informed them of my discrepancy. They replied “time posted from start to finish is correct”.
    I’m wondering if any other runners had race time discrepancies and/or found the course confusing?

    Hi...yes, my watch also showed the course being long, mine was actually closer to 26.5...and I think the time pace discrepancy comes from they are basing it as the course being 26.2. But yeah I also found the course really confusing although very pretty and I think it is slightly long, which can make a difference in getting into Boston or not, unfortunately.
