Having walked around on the summit of Pikes Peak

 
I'm surprised this doesn't happen more often.

An experienced 59-year-old runner collapsed and died during the Pikes Peak Marathon despite attempts by competitors to save him a little more than two miles from the summit.
High fives to people who even TRY to do that, I'm amazed at what humans are capable of. And I'm really impressed with the runners who stopped to administer CPR, in our jaded world it wouldn't be surprising if people stepped over him trying to keep their place in the race.

Comments:
We haven't done Pike's Peak yet, but after Mt Evans I'm sure I get the picture.

I'm glad to hear that some of the racers stopped to help. That would have been a really sad story if no one had stopped.
 
People like Lance Armstrong and Olympic athletes just amaze me. Even those who are able to finish a marathon deserve applause.
 
You know, 2 yrs ago I was in the Breast Cancer walk and a lady quite a bit in front of us tripped and everyone kept walking. I was shocked! My mom and I rushed up and helped her get to the closest med station.

I am amazed at people sometimes.

As for the races, yikes, I cant even imagine walking the Peak let alone race it!
