Omar Ahmed was only signed up to the Marathon I’m Not Almost There Vintage Shirt 10k and took a wrong turn. That seems so unfair! Surely it’s the job of the organisers to properly advertise where the route diverged? I watched him zoom past and surely it would be fair to reward him for his efforts somehow? He didn’t cheat, he overachieved
He realised his mistake after going beyond the 10k point & decided to run on. Obviously no issue with that, where you have a problem is like with all rules – they are there for a reason.
If it’s allowed to stand, it will set a precedent & you can guarantee people will abuse it. E.g. if say the half Marathon has sold out, runners might choose to enter the 10k & run the oversubscribed half instead. Not only will the race organisers lose out on race fees, the number of medals, t-shirts, drinks & goody bags won’t be sufficient for those that entered legitimately etc. etc.
The standard of marshaling & signing is another issue.
For those saying the 2nd & 3rd will know they didn’t win etc. True, but if Linford Christie had entered my school 50m I probably wouldn’t have won either!
The point being you’re entering g a race & racing against those who are legitimately in the race so their medal positions are valid.
So those that couldn’t keep up were sore losers then. What difference does it make which race he entered. The fact that he had the pace and fitness to make the 1/2 marathon is even more impressive when he had planned for the 10k.
He should keep the winners title. For me, if you accidentally run a marathon from start to finish and won it doesn’t matter if you did registration or not, you won and that’s it!
well done Omar! Hope this hits the national news and he gets the recognition he deserves for continuing to run – he would have known at some point it was going on too long.. shame his competitors couldnt congratulate him. BBC
