* About Distances

Many course distances are approximate, being a few meters short or long of the published distance.  DyeStat Elite Lists use distances that are "close" and will disclose the actual distance.   The only alternative would be to proliferate into a dozen different lists for different distances. And variables of weather course conditions make more of a difference in times than a few meters of error in measurement. Consider the following table to show how confusing it can get:  

Mile Meters Yards Note that 3.1 miles and 5000 meters, which are often considered interchangeable, are actually a little more than 11 meters different. 
3.0000 4827.9000 5279.8556
3.1000 4988.8300 5455.8508
3.1069 5000.0000 5468.0665

Some states run shorter distances for girls. We do not rank these distances because they are inconsistent between states.
