That puts him at 10k in 40 minutes. (average ~20 minutes per 5k). For every 5k after that he splits at 28-30 minutes.

A bunch of other runners with about the same result have no 5K split: http://results.active.com/events/brighton-marathon-2016/men-s-overall?_=1466275089256&page=10

I will try to check the race pictures though.[/quote]

Confirmation: this was just a timing mat not working, he didn’t cut the course there.
There is a photo point at the 5K mark, at the Royal Pavilion.
This picture shows RY at that location: http://www.marathon-photos.com/scripts/photo.py?template=MPX2&event=Sports/CPUK/2016/Brighton%20Marathon&bib=258&photo=MARG0015

You can enjoy his running form in these videos: http://www.brightonmarathon.co.uk/marathon-photos

But still a nice find, that missing split. Might be worth to check his other races.

This is the biggest joke of the lot.

Yes. Seb Coe was there. I have no idea how he managed to get that prize.
