The race brochure indicated USCF rules, but then at the end, the organizers indicated that was how it worked when chips were used. I guess they simply chose not to protest the stated rules, but those of us who legitimately race know that in a road race, you beat someone when you cross the line ahead of them. I was actually happy for the medalists, just unhappy with the way things were done. I had had a rather exciting weekend running the fastest 10K age group time in the nation, beating the state record in the 5K, and having a two-page newspaper article done on me, so I had my share of fun. I was happy they could bring home some goodies also!
