Excellent explanation of why your GPS is off a bit during a race – USATF – Runners World – Competitor Mag

Recently while watching the Run856 chatter on Facebook we saw a great deal of back and forth about just about everyone being slightly off when looking at their watch time and distance versus their race chip time and the known and verified race distance.  One of the Run856 users shared this explanation from the USATF:

http://www.usatf.org/Products-/-Services/Course-Certifications/USATF-Certified-Courses/Certify-Your-Course/Statement-on-GPS-Use-by-Runners.aspx

Taken directly from the USATF below:  

USATF/RRTC Position on GPS used by runners

Effective June 6, 2014

GPS devices work by receiving signals from satellites. The quality of different GPS units can vary, but all of them can be affected by conditions such as buildings in urban environments or heavy overhead tree cover that interfere with reception of the satellite signals and can cause them to be inaccurate.

Race courses Certified by USATF are measured by a proven method that incorporates the calibration of measuring devices against a steel tape and are verified by multiple measurements.

Race courses are measured along a well-defined path called the “SPR”—the Shortest Possible Route that a runner can possibly run. Most runners don’t actually run the SPR, so the distance recorded by their GPS device will usually be longer than the certified length of the course, even though the course was properly measured along the SPR according to USATF rules.

Don’t forget! We will be in the basement of the Haddonfield Running Co after the Adrenaline Run 5k this Saturday!

Just a quick reminder that Dr’s Andrew Gross, Tim Legath, and Craig Evans will be hanging out after the Adrenaline Run in the basement of the Haddonfield Running Co, this Saturday (03/18/2017) helping out runners, talking about conditions and doing our part to help the running community of South Jersey.  The Training Room of Haddonfield will also be sharing space with us as well and sending at least two DPT’s (Doctors of Physical Therapy) who will most likely be Kiersten Langel and Matt Hinsey!  Upstairs Dave Welsh and his team will be offering discounts to race participants and talking about all things running!  You have to remember that this marks the 20th anniversary of the store (1997 — 2017) so you can be sure it will be a great time to pick up some running shoes or gear.

We plan on being in the basement of the running store from 9:40 – 11:30 and may possibly stay until noon depending on how long everyone hangs around to chitchat.

We plan to set up in the basement of the Haddonfield Running Co after the Adrenaline 5k!

After the Haddonfield Adrenaline 5k, Dr. Craig Evans, Dr. Tim Legath, and Dr. Andrew Gross will be set up to help with post race discomfort and talk about runner related injuries if you would like to meet with us!  We will be in the basement with the DPT’s from the The Training Room of Haddonfield, Cherry Hill and Washington Township.  Chiro’s and Physical Therapists under one roof!  We also hope to have a Sports Medicine Orthopedic hanging out as well to make sure the post race hang out session is as well rounded and beneficial for all as possible.

The Haddonfield Running Co was started in 1997, so this marks the 20th anniversary of the store and we are very excited to be a part of the event.  Come on out to the store after the race and have a look around!  The race is currently sold out and is always a very good time.  Check out the videos below from past years!

Running actually lowers inflammation in knee joints – Running may also slow the process that leads to osteoarthritis

Watch out!  Dr. Tim Legath just dropped this article on my lap from BYU (Brigham Young University) which is entitled “Running actually lowers inflammation in knee joints – Running may also slow the process that leads to osteoarthritis”.

From the article on Science Daily:

Summary: We all know that running causes a bit of inflammation and soreness, and that’s just the price you pay for cardiovascular health. You know; no pain, no gain. Well, maybe not. New research from exercise science professors finds that pro-inflammatory molecules actually go down in the knee joint after running.

Link:  https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/12/161209100236.htm

More from the article on Science Daily:

“What we now know is that for young, healthy individuals, exercise creates an anti-inflammatory environment that may be beneficial in terms of long-term joint health,” said study lead author Robert Hyldahl, BYU assistant professor of exercise science.

Hyldahl said the study results indicate running is chondroprotective, which means exercise may help delay the onset of joint degenerative diseases such as osteoarthritis.

This is potentially great news, since osteoarthritis — the painful disease where cartilage at the end of bones wears down and gradually worsens over time — affects about 27 million people in the United States.

“This study does not indicate that distance runners are any more likely to get osteoarthritis than any other person,” Seeley said. “Instead, this study suggests exercise can be a type of medicine.”
