Update: Ragen has officially been disqualified.
It would appear that Ragen’s course cutting at the recent Fat Boy 5K in Long Beach has now resulted in disqualification and the removal of her finish time from the official results. It is unclear what precipitated this decision since Ragen has yet to address the race and allegations of cheating in any way. It has now been almost two weeks since her last IronFat update. It seems unlikely Ragen reported herself to the race officials as would be customary for a runner accidentally cutting the course, especially since she is clearly wearing a falsely obtained finisher medal when she crosses the finish line the wrong way.
To clarify any ambiguity over what Ragen is actually wearing when she crosses the finish line, this sequence of photos shows her pre-race without a medal, then crossing the finish line and post-race wearing a medal. Medals were handed out by volunteers as participants crossed the finish line, so Ragen actually obtained one before “finishing” backwards and wore it across the line for her photo op.
Ragen’s official race results now show “missing data” for her finish time, and her number 179 has been removed from the overall results.
It remains to be seen whether Ragen will address this issue, and whether it will have any impact on her IRONMAN training or IRONMAN Arizona entry in November. She had a similar scandal last year when she was caught clearly faking her training selfies in “Fake Selfie Sunday”. Her only response was to distract attention with a Facebook tirade about mysterious “haters” attempting to hack and doxx her and send graphic rape and death threats as part of a “campaign of sustained harassment”.
