I just read this morning – 45 opted to defer their Boston Marathon qualification to 2013, but they actually ran in 2012! CBS Boston reports:
About 2,200 runners were on the original (deferment) list, but 45 were identified in photographs as running the race after all.
From this article, it seems those 45 people are no longer on the deferment list and will not be able to register in August. Great finds, BAA! I wonder if they will be qualified if they run a qualifying time, or banned from 2013 race. I guess there will always be dishonest people like them, so I am not super surprised but rather disappointed. I believe running keeps me sane and makes me a better person, but apparently that does not work for everyone. What do you think about these 45?
