Of course we also have to take into account the hayfever season might start early as well ......
.... and then of course it might be a heatwave on the day which will also affect my time .......
but as you are a slim fit young thing.........make sure you aren't beaten by any overweight middle aged housewives.now that should shut you up for a while
This thread has been comedy gold.
My only thing to add to the OP question is that I'd be well annoyed if someone got a medal at my expense with a slower chip time than me because they'd shoved their way right to the front.
Lots of ultras already implement a version of this (Comrades, Western States etc) and I like the idea of having a medal based on time, chip time that is. Unfortunately that would mean a lot of wastage as at big events they'd have to overstock every version.
What's with the medal thing anyway. Mine are just chucked in a draw at home. There are only 2 that actually mean anything to me - a FLM one from 2004 (I do reckon that just completing a marathon is a pretty decent accomplishment, and I did go through quite a lot of pain to get it), and one from when I was part of our school cross country team which came 2nd in a large race - we had to actually earn that by our position & I managed to have a flier that day and count for our A team rather than the B team I usually counted for.

How would it work if the number of runners was uneven and thus wouldn't divide exactly into two?
You always round up
half a medal.
What about medals for the first half of the field and just ribbons for the second half?
How about give the first half medals and allow them to throw them at the second half of the field as they finish? Half the cost on medals and everyone gets one at some point.

How about they just shoot anyone taking over 2 hours ?
The Oscar rule.
Little did the lady know that spending too long in the bathroom could have such disastrous consequences.

Ouch!! lol. Too soon to laugh?
Its hilarious that poor old Oscar has tried to fit a flimsy story to the facts because its so obvious what he did.
It was the fact she needed to lock he bathroom door in the middle of the night
nail on the head there.............so many holes in his version of events.........
I think the holes were in her ?
Although that should probably be bang bang bang bang
