    Weird stuff. No aid stations for non-elite athletes. And when one wins they raise hell. Go girl! You didn't cheat!

    $40,000 dollars for the winner - $16,000 for second place - quite a bit to gain if you can kick up enough fuss to swing it into first place!! :eek:

    Winner did it fair and square - I'm damn sure I'd need a drink at some point during the 26 odd miles. (y)

    I disagree, she should have been disqualified. Rules are rules and she should have registered on time to gain access to the elite stations. She also had an unfair advantage as she did not have to carry any water bottles or energy gels like the rest of the runners, as her "coach" ran up and gave it to her.
