The UK Course Measurement Working Party has set up the Association of UK Course Measurers. The AUKCM Website contains minutes of meetings and some historical documents.


Runners and Officials occasionally query the length of races. Where possible we investigate to see if there is evidence of error. We publish brief reports of these investigations.
