Boston Marathon and GPS (Read 1052 times)

    Anybody run Boston Marathon wearing a GPS and upload your data to motionbased.com? I'd love to see the tracing if so.
      No that's never been done before. They confiscate GPS's when you enter the corals. If you run the course on your own with a GPS, the local police of all 8 cities and towns on course are trained to arrest GPS wearers.

      Runners run.

        Yeah, they tried taking mine. I told them it wasn't a GPS, it was a wrist-tv so I could watch the race while I ran it.

          Really? Why? What rationale?

            The actual Boston Marathon course is considered proprietary and secret and is shrouded in mystery. The course itself lives only in the memories of those who've run it and most of them were so delerious that they can't remember where they were anyway. Okay so, no. Not really. I made that up.

                  Totally kidding. I don't think there's any rule against GPS at Boston. In fact, a 30-second google search reveals...THIS.
