A: well that’s a pity cos I’m gonna win first prize!
B: yeah sure!
A: of course I am….I’m dead fast me!
C: if you’re racing against a snail that is!!
B: I know .. We could train together, it’d be fun!
A: Train?????(looks worried)
C: yes train….you really don’t think you can run a marathon without training do you?
A: I don’t need to train….I’m dead fast me!
B: ok race ya to the corner
(All run across stage, A wins easily)
A: see told ya I was dead fast!!
C: But can you run for 26 miles?
A: easy peasy

(Walking to start line)

D: on your marks…get set…GO!
(all start running, A gets slower and slower and ends up crawling up to finish line)
D: Well done….(gives B £100 prize) I can see you trained hard for the race
D: Well done to you too (gives C £50 prize)
A eventually crawls gasping to the finish line but collapses before he reaches it
D: Well you obviously didn’t train! And as you’ve not past the finish line I’m disqualifying you.
B;* whispers * I’m dead fast me!
A glares at him
D: I’m gonna give the third prize money to the winner since you’ve made no effort to run in the race.
