Hopelessly incorrrect distance and altitude. I selected this course in Zwift. It was 26.5mi and 2031ft before I was done. Definitely what I was expecting for a quick workout before work.

Rode this course 12/31/20 and it worked fine for me (Apple TV Zwift app). Distance and elevation was correct and it took about 45 mins. Perhaps you took a wrong turn?

Just attempted this course. Gave up after 17 miles. Was NOT awarded the route at the 14.1 mark so I stuck with it a bit in case i had read the Lead In info incorrectly. Pretty disappointing end to my week.

Similar story for me yesterday. 100% certain I selected this course and did not select a different turn or do a u turn during the ride. Zwift sent me on the route of Park Perimeter Loop, which I did 3 times and didn’t get the route badge for that either!

I have just done this route 31/01/21 and also no badge. I selected the route but went up KOM (not reverse?) so thought something was wrong!

I did this 4 times before I got the badge.
Check that Zwift is not sending you the wrong way round. You also need to pass under the start and finish banners to complete the course.
If you are started the wrong way do a u turn and come back they the banner to start the circuit.
