I'm with you, DT19. Not all of those who take the short route home are premeditated, and they don't all go on FB telling everyone how great they are and showing off their medal. Obviously they need to be removed from the results but aside from that I'd let them be.
Tommy the Clown though, pie him.
It is interesting that one as if you look at Arjuns number it has an M for male on it. A quick search in the 2018 results of that number and it appears Arjun Khanal run it using last years number.
Im reporting that!
I got a bit annoyed this morning reading about Love Island 'star' Georgia Harrison, who managed to complete the marathon in just over 4 hours despite doing basically no training and rolling in at 3am a couple of nights before.
Had a look at her photos and it seems like a man called Arjun is wearing her number (57446) in the photos from earlier in the race, and then she is only in photos right near the finish.
Couldn't figure out if the Arjun man had another number not caught by the camera, but really don't think he did!
That said, it could sound the death knell for fun threads like these ... so forget I mentioned it!

I'm not sure - looking at the photos from 2018, I think it's just that some 2018 photos are turning up in 2019?
no 71702 - has a 3h38 first half and a 3 hour second.
He's missed the same splits as the others.
There do seem far fewer of these anomalies in the results this year - either they have already screened out the worst offenders or people are realising that this is easily detected?

100% agree and now I feel really bad. The bitter runner in me obviously couldn't accept that someone can do a 4 hour marathon without tons of training!
Same gender, different age. I'm so anti cheat but feel very conflicted about personally snitching on someone... plus all the evidence would lead back to me here since you can't delete posts.
Timings for 30064 look a little dubious. Ran the second half 1:20 per k faster than the first half. Could have just been going very easy as they did get every timing mat but 2:08 for half and a 3:48 overall so a 1:40 second half.
Next runner with a time for the first half over 2hrs ran a 2:00:46 and finished in 3:57.
