Human error blamed for 'short' Milo Marathon 10K.

The race course of the 10K race in the Milo Marathon finals held Dec. 6 at Clark Field, Pampanga, was indeed 10 kilometers, but human error shrunk the distance to just 8.8 km.

This was the result of the investigation conducted by race organizer Rio de la Cruz on the insistence of runner Michael Keon, who noticed that the course was too short, leading to much faster times posted in the races.

While the investigation confirmed that the distance of the 10K race course was indeed accurate, it was found out that the lead marshal for the 10K event inadvertently made an early turn on the course resulting in a shortened race course, said De la Cruz.
