Bear Gives Colorado Racers a Reason to Run

If you were in the middle of a cross-country race and a bear suddenly appeared on the course you would probably run faster.

A bear, who probably just wanted to cross the road, had an unexpected surprise of a large number of people running down the road. Rather than wait patiently for those people to pass, he simply sauntered from one side to the other.

This was the scene on Sunday (June 11) at the Garden of the Gods 10-mile and 10k Run near Colorado Springs

Some runners suddenly got an extra burst of energy, while others decided to lose some valuable time rather than lose a fight with a bear.

Actually, the bear was less interested in the runners and more interested in getting to his destination which just happened to transverse the race course.
