I'm trying to get an idea of total elevation for the Loch Ness Marathon. Looking at the route profile, if the 'smoothing' is set to default the elevation is 8 meters/mile or 210 meters total. If the smoothing is set to none the elevation is 13 meters/mile or 342 meters total. Which is the most accurate and why, please?

Hi Ali - the figure with no smoothing is arguably the most accurate as the smoothing process uses a rolling average to smooth out the peaks and troughs.
