Storm Scuttles English Fell-Marathon and Strands Runners Overnight

This story has had some pretty good play in the media this morning, but this short clip of the conditions at yesterday's Original Mountain Marathon is still worth a watch. Though up to 25 runners were unaccounted for after some hard looking by officials - as the runners sought shelter from the brutal conditions - all have been found safe and sound as of this morning, if a little cold, wet, and tired. Kudos to those who toed the line, showing true ultra/fell running chutzpa.

Amazing! Lets hope our Galena runs never end up like that.
