So what forum name is Tony Audenshaw hiding behind then?  Maybe he's Karen.

Nah, I've met Karen.  Definitely didn't recognise her from Emerdale.

Agree with Dan and Mr I, i too remain doubtful that any results will be removed, even those where there is a clear case of 'cheating' - and I'm think men running as women here.

I'm sure 'proper' runners would rather have say 1 sub 18 park run than 150 23 minute ones but I may be mistaken. Dedication possibly, but then again I've run every Saturday for years, on different routes from my own front door. I don't expect a t-shirt for my efforts though.

Well, I've proudly done more than 200 parkruns and taken my best time down from 23mins-plus to under 20, so I think you can combine the two. Of course, there have been days when I've just trundled round, but I've done that on 'ordinary' training runs too. And if they want to give me a t-shirt, who am I to say 'no'!?

If I did that I might run into you, Nick, and that really would be dull.

Nick: Peter has been out at least 200 times!

I see RW has included some "rogue runners" in the latest edition of the magazine.
Interestingly only one from this year's race...

Nice to see them at the cutting edge of journalism.

Maybe they should keep it as a regular feature, enough material has been highlighted in other threads.
