The Warwick Half Marathon course has been measured by UKA through what they have deemed the “SPR,” or the shortest possible route that a runner can possibly cover, this is known as running the tangents. It is nearly impossible to run the exact route that the measurer used due to other runners on the course, making wider turns or taking on water stations, this will lead to a difference in the runners GPS and the official course distance.
