The UK Facebook group is like North Korea. No mention of RY at all. Once the evidence started to appear that "one of their own" was dodgy they jumped on the defensive and hounded the girl that was questioning the legitimacy of RY's attempt.
They then closed all comments and any posts mentionin RY.
The funny thing is the "running gods" on that site all run their own running businesses (race directors or positive shoe reviewers for hire). ...RY is bad for business hence the denial and censorship.
Bit sad as it used to be a good place for info.....now just self promotional "look at my wacky race series" or "Buy this Skins top for $200 it will make run awesome like Roby"
As I read it, Elke came across as somewhat intense and with a personal grudge. She? was passionate but made personal attacks, which did not endear her to the group. Spamming every single post in favour of RY rather than putting a single or a few carefully chosen posts meant she turned into irritating noise.
