    Running Outside

    Advertisements



    Hey all. I was wondering if anyone knows the true distance from the true blue gatehouse to bananas...its not the .5 miles the sign says it is (or is it)?

    Ive been trying to find some accurate measurement of distance while I run and I dont think that sign is accurate...

    Any help is much appreciated...

    i dont thnk its .5 mile either, probably just a rough estimate.
    my guess would probably be more like 1/4 mile from the gate to banana's

    0.6 km (0.37 miles)

    According to the trip meter on my car, from the roundabout with the ".5 mile" sign to the upper security booth on campus, it is 0.6 km.

    Unfortunately pedometers are not very accurate at counting steps or measuring distances...

    When we drove to school in our car today it was 0.8 miles from the circle to Bananas and then 0.7 miles to the guard gate. So, 1.5 miles from the guard gate to the circle or 3 if you make it round trip.
