Does anyone here know of the approximate prevalence of certified courses for low-key "club" races conducted by RRCA clubs around the U.S.?
Some members of one large RRCA club I know of feel that all courses for races conducted by the club should be certified. The current club management doesn't think it is worthwhile. The "pros" point out that RRCA clubs should be an example of good race stewardship by ensuring accurate courses, and that all participants are entitled to truth-in-advertising as it pertains to the course distance. The "antis" argue that the cost would be too much. As I reference its annual budget and financial reserves, certifying all its courses at the average going rate would amount to little more than a trivial expense for this particular organization.
Last I looked, RRCA had no policy on this. Does anyone know of an RRCA club that certifies all its courses?
