In the video he was stood there for forty five seconds before he started running and I notice that the competitors passing him have to take a wide sweep around the junction keeping to the right of the yellow line in the road.
Frank enters and completly cuts this corner running diagonally and saving himself maybe twenty metres. Not only that there are five marshalls stood right there. Four behind where he enters the course and one just after whom he runs towards and then past. How in hell didn’t that raise a flag? He obviously entered the race right under their noses.
Even if he hadn’t clearly just jumped into the race and cheated, he cut the course by missing that corner which everyone else had to navigate. Crazy.
The course is defined as curb to curb unless there are cones or other markings indicating otherwise. Everyone should have run tight around that turn. Note also that the timing mat is centered on the roadway, with cones. There is no indication for the runners to be right of the center line.
