John Beattie and Lee Merrien crossed the finish line at the same time (1:08:13) ahead of more than 600 runners at the NSPCC Milton Keynes Half Marathon in Buckinghamshire, England.
Merrien, whose name appears second in the results, took to Twitter to talk about how first place was decided.
Technically @beattiejohn and I crossed the line together but we settled the matter by a good old fashioned coin toss :)
