Yes - but the problem is finding a better way of "triggering" the start and stop clocks at each end of the kilo. I understand that SBI was using manually operated "stop watches" in the Washington, NC kilo runs!!

Don't get me wrong - I'm quite satisfied that the official record speeds are very very close. But I do believe the methods used could be improved with "laser" technology. Everything else involved with an APBA/UIM sanctioned kilo event seems to be very well executed - such as accurately surveyed courses, etc.
