Runners Caught On Traffic Cam Taking Shortcut During Half Marathon

Listen, I've run a half marathon.  I know firsthand how hard it is, and how you wanna take a shortcut half through!  But I don't understand why any runner WOULD!  You're running the half marathon for yourself.  if you cheat, you're only cheating yourself.

A traffic cam caught runners in a half marathon in China cutting through trees, cutting over a mile off the run!!

According to ABC News:

In all, 258 runners were punished for various methods of cheating, including having fake bib numbers and hiring impostors, organizers said.

Still no idea why you would do that.
