3rd place Marathon runner admits cheating

A runner who came third in a marathon has admitted he caught a bus to complete the last six miles of the race.

At first Rob Sloan, 31, tried to claim training made him a “much better runner” this year after shaving 21 minutes off his previous time in the Salomon Kielder Marathon in Northumberland on Sunday.

The Sunderland Harrier initially denied cheating and was contesting his disqualification, claiming his GPS-enabled watch would prove he completed the race which circuits Kielder Reservoir.
