The Stupidest Marathon Ruling in the World
The Nike Women's Marathon in San Francisco is open to both genders, but for obvious nomenclature reasons is more popular with women runners. Turns out just running fastest doesn't win the race. I've run maybe two dozen marathons and while I'm no elite runner, I figured I would have heard about a rule like this before. Track and field rules really miss the point sometimes.
