Another Marathon Cheater?
In this day and age I'm amazed that anyone tries to lie about easily verifiable facts. What are people thinking?
Marathon Guide shows 6 results for this guy, with Boston and Towpath 2013 having been removed from the record (according to the article):
--2007 Philly 3:59
--2011 RnR San Diego 3:52
--2011 Towpath 3:12
--2011 Dublin 4:32 (I think this is the same guy, their results show the correct age but say USA instead of his hometown)
--2012 Boston 4:51
--2012 Towpath 3:12
I don't know the Towpath Marathon, but the course map shows it as basically a double out-and-back on a trail. You start by running south, do a 180°, run north past the finish line to another turn around, do another 180°, then run back south to the middle where the finish is. They usually get around 450 runners so it should be possible to write down all the bib numbers at the turn arounds to confirm that everyone did the full course. Especially where Mr. Goodman claism to be runnign for that race, that's the top 25 or so. Very easy to write down bib numbers at that point of the race if you want to verify that everyone is doing the whole course.
I won't make any claims here, I think the record of his results speaks for itself.
