Re: miles vs metric
In reply to jedinstvo, Jun 11, 2012

I ran the Capitol 10000 one year. It cracked me up that it's actually measured in miles even though it's a 10000 metre race.

Maybe Americans don't know what stones are because they are about as consistent as varas.

In the US road racing is almost always in miles. The exception is 5 and 10 k races, which are common. In Canada they don't even know what a mile is. It's bizarre. The young people have no idea about inches, feet, yards, rods, furlongs, acres, or pounds. Of course, Americans don't know what a stone is....
