  1. Gediminas

    Jacaranda city challenge that took place 13 October 2018, can’t be regarded as a qualifier for the Two Oceans and/or Comrades because the distance of the half marathon track was 20.1 km instead of 21.1 km and accordingly for the marathon it was 40.2 instead of 42.2.

    You can investigate the matter or bring into attention to whoever is responsible.
