I loved participating in this enduring race the past 3 years "toughest marathon according to google" Just to finish is a huge accomplishment. I'm a middle of the pack runner so the finishers medal and shirt is my motivation. What makes me upset is that somebody that didn't even make the A-frame cut-off time came through the finish line and received a medal. I saw this person come across the finish line and had to bite my tongue when I saw him receive the medal. How good can you feel about it when you didn't complete the whole course? I thought there were checks in place so this wouldn't happen. As hard as this course is and as proud as I am for completing it. It should be regulated that everybody that receives a medal---earned it!
