RE: Robert Young fakes run across America
CoachKev and apersson, thanks for contributing. We aren't trying to attack you, and it is good to hear that parts of what he has done previously, were done.
Unfortunately there are big issues with a lot of what he has claimed. If he runs three quarters of the way across America, that is impressive. But if he is claiming to have ran the whole way, and in fact he got a lift for a quarter, this is completely wrong. To run 3/4 is impressive, but I hope you can understand why people would be outraged if it is found that he took shortcuts.
Do either of you have any information on his half marathon pb? I couldn't find results for that anywhere, (or even his marathon pb)?
We aren't trying to condemn someone, but at the moment there seems lots of claims and the few bits of evidence don't help (video of RV moving slowly but there being no runner, GPS is in the vehicle, but showing up on trails vehicles can't go on, stories of how the days have gone (desert) that are 100% impossible).
