I hope Duane or Gene will post the new guidelines here in the appropriate format but I'll leave that to them. I think at least part of the recent e-mail discussion belongs in this section rather than in the conversation about elevation.
A point I'd like to raise here is the matter of deciding what jurisdiction to assign a race to, in cases where the course goes through more than one. In particular I have 2 courses, the Marine Corps Marathon and the Army Ten Miler: both start and finish in Virginia but most of the route is in the District of Columbia. They have always had DC certification. I understood from long-ago discussions that this was the right decision, so I am puzzled upon seeing that the jurisdiction should be the state where the FINISH is located.
Nobody answered when I raised this question before, I guess in all the excitement about decimal points, but I'm hoping someone can address this point.
