BOSTON – Four people who ran the Boston Marathon are accused of using counterfeit bibs to get in the race, according to an article on Runner's World.
A statement posted on Big River Running's Facebook page says they do not "condone the behavior of any individuals who take part in this practice" and do not know the girl in question. They say they are "appalled" she chose to wear their emblem, and her actions do not reflect what their logo represents. Big River Running operates four stores in the St. Louis area.
Kara Bonneau of Durahm, N.C., the runner actually assigned to the number, told Runner's World she noticed the four others wearing her number when she looked up her race photos online. She says she's not sure if they printed out a copy of her race number after she posted a photo of it on Instagram or if they purchased duplicates of her bib.
