Course Measurements

Most runners want to know if the course has been accurately measured so they can evaluate their performance and especially if they hope to achieve a personal best. Official measurement is a condition for the issue of a race licence by the governing bodies in this case the UKA. The Certified Accurate logo is instantly recognised by officials and most runners as a guarantee of measurement accuracy. The Power of 10 Rankings only recognise performances on courses licensed by UKA and which have a Certificate of Course Accuracy.

The Carlisle Resolution 5K & 10K races are both certified accurately measured courses and the certificate is renewed every year.
