Nice ride. Rain often screws with recorded elevation, so the more rain the less I would trust Garmin's final readout.
For my previous 600k, my audax club used QR codes, so we just scan the code printed on banners placed at the start of the ride and then at the finishing point. Unfortunately requires everyone to have a smartphone capable of reading QR codes and a data plan though (but then again, the smartphone does make entering stores a whole lot easier as we need to do the whole contact tracking/tracing thing, and screenshots from those store entry scans are also pretty effective proof-of-arrival material).
