People run marathons for different reasons. Some do it to get in shape, some consider it a bucket list item, and some do it because running 25 plus miles is a glorious achievement. For the most part, people run marathons for honorable reasons.
Well, everyone but British runner Rob Sloan.
The reports say the lazy runner was spotted by a number of people catching a free ride at about the 20-mile mark of the Kielder Marathon on Sunday before the finish, hiding behind a tree only to rejoin the race at the end to accept a third place finish. Organizers disqualified Sloan Friday after he placed third in the race but admitted to actually failing to complete the entire race. You can’t be serious.
What was he thinking? He thought he was slick too! The moral of the story is to take a cab next time you want to cheat in a marathon children SMH
