I was one of the men who witnessed the lady cutting the switch back, the guy behind me yelled you cant do that and her bib number which I forgot, I think she was like the 4th female coming down and I thought at the start there were like 3 or 4 ladies wearing the same outfit she had. I think that any body cutting the course intentionally should be DQ, she totally saw a line of man coming up and went down hill over the rocks with no trail to follow there is no way that this was not intentional. I wish I would had memorized her bib number.
In response to:
Here is my conversation to several other runners who witnessed a top female cutting a switchback on her descent….” Look at that she cut the course, that is wrong. No one would care if one of us punters did that but at her level, that’s bullsh_t… she is wearing bib #__!”
If you are one of the 2-3 men who also witnessed this course violation, please confirm this with the race director.
