ST. LOUIS (KPLR) – The first woman to finish the GO! St. Louis Marathon has been disqualified after race officials determined she did not run the entire course, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Thursday.

As a result of the disqualification, runner Kendall Schler has been pulled from next week’s Boston Marathon and will no longer be allowed to run in any more GO! St. Louis races.

Race officials said Schler, a Columbia resident, did not post any times on the 26.2-mile route. Nancy Lieberman, president of GO! St. Louis, doubts Schler even ran the entire race in 2014 either.

Andrea Karl was declared the winner, with a time of 2:54:48.
