Our latest question comes from Meredith who asks:
When I race a 5k, I am definitely in the middle of the pack. At some point during the last mile, I start to see people running the wrong way on the course, numbers still on … I guess these are runners who have already finished and are cooling down?
But why do they have to do it on the course? Are they flaunting their faster times? Showing off? (Trying not to be ‘speedist‘ here but it is hard!) Or are they just looking for a friend? In which case, why can’t they just wait for said friend at the finish instead of taking up room on the course?
Can someone shed some light for me on why some runners need to run the race backwards while others are still running it forwards?
Ah, the old Reverse-Race-Course-Cool-Down question! Read more >>
