Like fishing in the aquarium?
Because.... if you are running Marathon, you do not want clowns on bicycles, Harleys, Ferraris to "show" you how it's done.

Again, I can just picture some 6000 stations spotting themselves. 
The Ham Radio contesting supposed to be you, your radio station, category, time limit and see what you can do when the bell rings at the end.
Looks like we chose to swim if it is swimming event and not to run.
