RE: USATF Announces 2020 Olympic Trials Marathon qualifying standards
I agree completely in theory, though when I went to watch (Houston 2012) with standards comparable to these new ones you still had some people jogging and lollygagging and waving to the crowd in the back. On the one hand, if they ran the qualifying time, its their right to be there. On the other, I'd negotiate for a top-500 race by offering to drive a bulldozer behind the last runners, with which to scoop up and remove anyone not taking the event seriously.
