3 runners die competing in the Detroit marathon

The Associated Press: 3 runners die competing in the Detroit marathon

Quote:
A half-marathoner and two other runners died during the Detroit marathon on Sunday, organizers said.

Daniel Langdon, 36, of Laingsburg, collapsed at about 9:02 a.m. between the 11- and 12-mile markers, said Rich Harshbarger, vice president of consumer marketing for the Detroit Media Partnership.

Rick Brown, 65, of Marietta, Ohio, collapsed at 9:17 a.m., near where Langdon went down, and 26-year-old Jon Fenlon of Waterford collapsed at about 9:18 a.m., just after finishing the half-marathon in 1:53:37, Harshbarger said.

It was unclear whether Brown and Langdon were participating in the 13.1-mile half marathon or the full race.

Harshbarger told the Free Press that there were at least six medical stations on the race course and that emergency personnel were on the scene within seconds.

Long bouts of running wear down muscle. And since the heart is a muscle...

Skinny runners with skinny muscles probably also have skinny hearts....just my guess...

That is bizarre! Marathons happen all the time yet I've never heard of instances like this with multiple deaths and them being so close together makes it even more strange!

It was in Detroit...I think it's economy related.
