    5, x W, road/track.

    What was the net rise or drop from start to finish for the entire 15K?

    The link provided by Master403 (thanks!), then clicking on Gidey's name, leads to a fantastic page that shows all of her kilo splits, along with a course-elevation map.
    First 5K is mostly uphill, rising about 56 meters: 15:07
    2nd segment has a net downhill, but also has two climbs, leading to the highest point in the race, about 64 meters above the start: 14:36 (her track 5K PB is 14:29.xx)
    3rd segment drops back to the starting elevation: 14:36

    Her fastest 5 kilos add up to 14:19.

    Gidey's track 5K PB is actually 14:23.14 from 2018 (Rabat Diamond League), though one suspects at this point she (or her shoes ) would be capable of significantly faster. So whether it be 14:23 or 14:29, perhaps not that relevant anymore.
