Don't see any harm in him not completing the races as long as the cash in his bucket is going to charity.

This goes back to the moral argument of the original thread which was basically is it ok to cheat or is it only ok to cheat if it's "for charity"?

But anyway, read the original thread. It was an interesting debate.

Fair point, not sure whether he collects the medal or not, my main issue though is whether the charity see,s the cash!

Maybe he gave 10% to the charity and then treated himself to a massage, a VIP tent with a buffet and a hotel and some new kit. That would be alright wouldn't it?

An infamous cheating incident from the 1999 comrades marathon, relevant bits from the Joburg times newspaper report:-

An athelete who admitted cheating by running South Africa's Comrades Marathon, one of the world's most grueling road races, in relay with his look a like brother, was disqualified. One brother ran the first half then the other brother completed the second half, changing in a roadside toilet.

The brothers' plan was only foiled because photographs of the race published in Beeld, Johannesburg's daily newspaper, showed runner number 13018 at one stage wearing a yellow watch on his left wrist. At another stage the runner with that number was wearing a pink watch on his right wrist.

Are you sure you're not getting confused with a RastaMouse episode?

I say we should pie him.

Then stand on his big feet.

Actually one of the best things about that old thread was the suggested punishments. 

I still think the Forum should turn up en masse at one of his races, give him a damned good pieing and then stick a hosepipe down his trousers

Indeed. I read the old thread last night and Mr Chloella was perturbed by my hysterical laughter. An intertubes classic.

I finished last in the Vale of Leven 10K yesterday, and despite passing Tommy the clown at the 2k mark I crossed the finishing line and there he was with his medal and goody bag.

I hope you pied him, Jim?

Interesting, comedy shaped route. No idea how anyone could miss part of the run.
