Was the Super Sunday course short?

I’ve heard that question a lot in the last 24 hours. Race director claimed 5K sharp… so what happened? Honestly, I have no idea. Too much reliance on technology? Keep in mind, a small discrepancy gets multiplied when using the same start and finish line for a 2 lap course. [...]
