Precautionary tale here:
Then the one (age 36) who raced came in 2nd in AG (40-45 for the
original bib owner/begger). It's not clear who stood on the podium since
the description didn't match someone who did the passing. The hardware
has been returned to the race. But the true 2nd and 3rd placers never
got their correct spot or spot at all on the podium.
At least they both got banned for life from the race. (a few other
thoughts also but maybe not suitable for family forum)
I understand that the Leadville 100 is a hugely popular (and possibly
much hyped) race and that the organizers wish to prevent a black
market and scalping by making the entries non-transferrable and I
would imagine that someone who gave or sold (at cost) her entry to
someone else could perhaps be guilty of a breach of contract, but I
don't see how that alone could be a criminal offense for either - and
I would certainly condone it.
Accepting the prizes and awards in an AG one is not entitled to race
in is another matter, though, but I'm not sure that it should be a
matter for a DA unless the two were in cahoots with purpose and intent
to deceive in the first place.
