This confirms that he didn't run the race in 2005 at all, he was driven in a lead vehicle.
Very interesting, FB, thanks.
This is of course irrelevant compared to the other allegations, but I'd like to ask you running experts if he ever really ran a marathon, or it was another aspect to his self aggrandising.
I've heard plenty of rumours that he would be given a lift to the finish (those rumours were well before he turned his toes up).
His wikipedia page says he ran the london marathon in 2005, but there's no record of him on the finishers list that I looked at.
Perhaps it would give an insight if we could somehow find evidence of marathons that he actually completed. He claimed hundreds so there must be evidence of them somewhere?
