schlerSt. Louis – The first woman to cross the finish line at the recent St. Louis Marathon had her victory taken away from her after officials determined that she did not run the event, the St. Louis Dispatch reported Friday.

Kendall Schler is believed to have slipped onto the course on Sunday after the last checkpoint in an attempt to trick race officials into believing she ran the whole marathon.

Officials said that Schler failed to register any times on the 26.2 mile route, and that a review of the previous year’s marathon, where Schler registered a third place finish, also did not reveal any image of her on the course.  More
