RE: Robert Young fakes run across America
I've been running ultras since 2008 and have rarely heard of instances of cheating, although I'm not an RD either so haven't been in a position to verify the results. Yes, it does occur, but to infer that "many" people are cheaters in the sport is off-base and disparaging to the great majority of us who don't cheat. I would venture to say that cheating is more rampant at the marathon distance because the recognition is greater among the general public...ultras are still largely unknown to most people and somewhat of a fringe sport.
