Anyone been passed by or overtaken a celeb during a race?
I once lined up with Motty and then saw him come in at the end of a 10 miler.

I got cut up by Gordon Ramsey in the Reading Half Marathon a couple of years ago, he apologised though, so he's obviously not quite as rude in real life! I beat him by a few minutes in the end too!

3 years ago, 5 minutes before the start of a half-marathon in Lisbon, a hand came from the croud and a voice said: "Have a good race." I was concentrating for the race ahead and just half-looked, shook the hand and said: "Thanks, you too." As he passed me and went on greeting people, I saw that it was the Portuguese President :d

I haven't entered a race, but...

I have been watched at rugby by the chap who plays Eric Pollard in Emmerdale :d

Also been watched (while on rugby tour) by Arwel Thomas (ex-Wales international).
I've run with him at fleet. And that bloke who played cain. He's ok in real life! I also saw peter riley after the national 10k a couple of years ago. We were in exactly the same kit! Just good taste i guess.....

My Dad's claim to fame was having his face stitched up by Dr Roger Bannister, after a dog had bitten him... fairly cool I think :cool:

Not quite the route this thread is going down, but worth a mention...

I have a newspaper photograph (from a long time ago) of myself leading a 10k race, with Mike Mcleod on one shoulder and Steve Cram on the other. They weren't there for long before haring off into the distance! (However, I've managed to beat them both on other occasions :) ).
