Were there any adjustments to the Wingfoot course this year? Or was the course kept the same for caparisons year to year.

Course was identical to last years course with minor adjustments to course width to allow for a more fair start through the first mile, which was quite narrow last year after the initial straight. No hills or turns were added. The front of most races was MUCH less aggressive than last year on both the boys and girls side allowing most of the front runners to remain in contact through 1.75-2 miles. Also for those in question of distance our course team measured the course with two wheels 2-3 times on Friday after all markers were set. Distance - 5010M If you have questions feel free to contact me

For those still curious here is 2017 vs. 2018 course. Minor adjustments were made to the course to help with runner traffic and safety.
