Multiplier to Convert Finish Time to 10 Miles

Unfortunately the turn around in West Potomac Park on our revised course was misplaced at this year's race, causing the course to be 80 yards short of a full 10 miles (the actual measurement is 9.96 miles). The organizers profoundly regret this unfortunate error in our event, which has prided itself for 47 years on organizational excellence and support for elite athletes, as well as the masses of runners who follow them. When we publish the results, we will include everyone's pace per mile for 9.96 miles. Just to put matters in perspective, we have included a chart below to give you an idea of the amount of difference the shortness would make at various paces. If you want to compute your likely time for a full ten miles ,simply multiply your finish time (in minutes) by 1.00401606.
