E? (Read 458 times)

    What does an E mean next to a runner's name in race results? I am noticing this next to the names of quite a few runners who participated in the GR HM. k

    She was not strong. She was valiant. Radiant. Brave and broken. The beauty she discovered in the aftermath was unparalleled to anything she had known before, because it had come at such a cost.

        You'll ruin your knees!

          Don't really know, but did the race allow for an option to start early? This is not uncommon in longer races where cut-off times might make it challenging for slower runners to finish "officially". Just a guess... Lynn B

            Yep, it did...I kinda wondered if that's what that meant. They had a "velocity challenged" start an hour early. k

              Apparently you don't need to run slow in order to make use of the "start early" option, though? ConfusedYour link shows quite a few people running sub-3:00 with an "E". But perhaps people who are really gunning for a PR would try to do it with fewer runners around to get in the way? It still doesn't make sense, some how... Confused By the way... check out the 80 year old who ran a 3:20! Go Wally! Shocked Big grin

                That's what confused me...there were people who I didn't consider slow at all who started an hour early. It was supposed to be reserved ONLY for 6+ hour marathoners. I think I saw Wally...how cool was that?! There were quite a few "seniors" out on that course kicking ass and taking names. I had a lot of people my parents age (early 60s) and older scootin' by me. I want to be like that in 30 years! Big grin k
