Manchester: A British runner has been banned for 12 months for utilizing a automobile in an 80km marathon.
Based on overseas media, within the marathon held from Manchester to Liverpool in April of this yr, a runner named Josiah Zakrzewski accomplished a part of this lengthy race in a automobile.
Knowledge from the GB Ultras Manchester to Liverpool monitoring system confirmed that Josiah traveled 4km on the car.
The 47-year-old runner claimed that as quickly because the races had been over, he alerted the administration about getting a raise from a buddy within the automobile in the course of the race. Which was flatly rejected by UK Athletics’ Unbiased Disciplinary Panel.
The panel mentioned in its resolution that the runner acquired the third-place trophy after the race was over. If that they had instructed something about it, they’d not have finished it.
Throughout the ban, Josia will be unable to carry out teaching and administrative duties along with operating.
