Does anyone remember

I think it was Manchester 10k but I'm not sure-The "winner" was miles ahead and thought he had it, not realising that the guy he'd left for dead was steaming home with a late run, slowed down waving and got beaten right on the line.  Didn't turn up for his silver medal.

Anyone remember the event and year please?

    Not if I was the second guy...

    But shirley someone else saw this?  3 or 4 years ago now... 

  • Nothing here, sorry
  • Can't help with that one Mr P but something similar happened in the women's race at Chicago last year. Adere ran a spectacularly fast finish.

    Chicago 2007
  • Mr P, that does ring a bell.  Can't remember the year but I think it wasn't that long ago.  mmmm, that is going to bug me now.  Ta matey
  • There was a world half mara championship two or three years ago where that happened. Edmonton 2005, perhaps?
  • Yep, Edmonton

    I expect there are a fair few similar examples.

    Woo-Hoo! Thanks Swerve, that is indeed the one!  It must have been the weather that made me think it was Manchester.

    Enjoyed watching the Chicago vid too Mel...
