I mean, perhaps she was advised that it was OK? It maybe a colleague told her that the rules were unclear, and she should accept the award?
ahhh haaaa i see what you did there
So…all this training I’ve been doing for an ultramarthon has been for nothing?
To be fair, you aren’t at your best at the finish of an ultra, even if you only ran 47.5 miles. I can see not being mentally sharp enough handle a stressful situation well.
I also doubt there’s any prize money, as most ultras are operated on shoe-string (ha) budgets. It really sucks that there’s this much media attention for something that affects maybe 2 or 3 other people in the whole world (and my bet is they aren’t upset about it anyways).
What’s with the photo - is that the arid desert landscape of Southern Lancashire?
Long distance running gives you plenty of time to think . . . about a plausible excuse for why you cheated for part of the race.
This tbh, that’s the most parsimonious explanation
I think it is pretty clear that if you have done any part of an ultra in a vehicle without being directed to by the race organisers, you are disqualified. That should not be ambiguous.
I understand her desire to finish the race, but in that instance you need to stop before going down the finish chute.
