Hi,
I've competed in half-marathons few years ago but unfortunately can't find my medals. Would it be an issue if the AdCom/Third Party companies (Kroll) as me to prove my claim about running half-marathons?
Thanks!

silversurferradd,

No worries; they are very unlikely to ask you for proof of your marathons. They would focus on more substantive/verifiable aspects of your application.

Thanks! My worry is that all my marathons (except one) were not popular marathons. If Kroll contacted the organizers, I'm not very confident that they'd be able to provide the details of participation(dates, completion times, etc)
