It seems like they're taking the rules seriously, but a few questions:
-As someone else noted, are they encouraging folks to ride along with them to provide nutrition? If so, that seems to be in violation of competition rules. Although they could just be telling you to have someone on a bike hopscotch along to meet you at pre-designated points, they don't make that clear and seem to allow for the ride-along.
-They don't note whether pacers are allowed. Obviously, registered and concurrently competing pacers are allowed, but what if a runner who isn't running the same race appears in most or several key locations' race photo/videos? Will they DQ for that? (Per sanctioned events' competition rules, they should.)
-Are there any rules about sanctioned eople making this call will beevents having to start at a pre-determined time? I doubt it, because I feel like some Nike groups have set up competitions with flexible times specifically to chase standards, but that feels sketchy to me, too, frankly, and this takes it to even the next level beyond that.
-I wonder how prepared they are to actually DQ, and whether the people who will be making that call will be Revel employees or unbiased observers who don't potentially have their livelihoods staked on the success of this event.
-I also wonder what "evidentiary standard," if you will, the officials determining DQs will be using. Based on the exceptional and unprecedented nature of this competition, it seems that it should be a low one to maintain the integrity of their results (until, at least, there is proof of concept, and they could tighten it up if their safeguards seem to be working).
All of this being said, this is an innovative idea that I really like. It's just important that the execution is flawless for it to turn into what we want it to be.
