Great Scottish Run 150m short: Eilish McColgan records invalidated

Oops. An extract:

Remarkably, the Scot was not surprised to be told by the organisers in a phone call on Tuesday that the course was short – because she felt that was the case on the day.

“My gut feeling was that it was short. I crossed the line and said straight away to my partner ‘I think that is out by about 15 or 20 seconds’,” she added.

“It’s not a huge amount, but I am used to running 10ks – I know pace and I know distance, and that to me did not feel like a 30:18. It did not feel that pace. So it didn’t come as a huge surprise to me.”

The $64,000 question, did Ms McColgan inform the organisers of her suspicion on the day? I’ve seen nothing to suggest that she did.
