XUZHOU, CHINA — A Chinese marathon runner was disqualified at the Xuzhou International Marathon for doing something you don't see every day in a race—she rode a bike.
According to Runners World, the race took place last weekend in the eastern province of Jiangsu.
Apparently, after the Chinese Forest Gump was spotted on the bicycle, she was told by race officials over and over again to get off the bike.
According to Fit World Sport, Blade Not Runner ignored their instructions and proceeded to pedal away.
Unfortunately, Not-So-Speedy Gonzales can't ride a bike too well either, because it still took her 5 hours, 38 minutes and 36 seconds to cross the finish line.
The marathon organizers announced that Flash had been disqualified and received a lifetime ban.
Guess there's always cycling. Too bad she'd probably end up cheating by driving a car.
According to Runner's World, since running has become popular in China, so has cheating in marathons.
In the Shenzhen Half Marathon just last November, more than 250 runners were caught taking a shortcut.
