RE: Robert Young fakes run across America
Also, RY and crew won't call off the record attempt because they still think it's legit. Even though they know he rode for some of the miles, in their minds, they're thinking, Aaah. Close enough. The route from CA to NYC is too long anyway. You're only supposed to run 2766 miles anyway so if our best route is a little longer, it doesn't matter if we cut diagonally offroad to save some miles. Or save some more miles if RY rides in the RV. We can still say he ran cross country because he ran more than 2766 miles. Enough to count. We won't tell anyone he rode in the RV because they'll misunderstand as if it's cheating.
They won't ever say that publicly, but I imagine that's what they're thinking.
Notice this quote from RY's website:
"Per the Guinness World Record guidelines, â€œIt is up to the runner to choose the shortest/most suitable route between the two citiesâ€¦â€ so long as â€œâ€¦the route distance [is] equal to or greater than New York City to Los Angeles.â€ Any two coastal cities may be chosen as long as their distance apart exceeds the 2,766 miles from Los Angeles to New York."
