Basic prey drive, if it is running it will be chased. I'll bet they were tourists, or recent relocation. I'd be willing to bet native Alaskans use treadmills.

Only the 16 year old was killed at Bird Ridge while racing. The other mauling that resulted in a death was at the Pogo mine about 300 miles away.

Yeah, thats kind of my point.

BM attracts about 500K spectators, and 30K runners.

Even then, they don't really have armed guards. They have police. Not really the same thing. And I'd bet that atleast prior to the whole bombing thing, they probably used the majority of the police on hand as traffic guards than as actual security.


Certainly not a reasonable idea for a run in rural AK that probably had less than 100 runners, and probably a dozen or so spectators/staff.

If there were 200 people there, I'd be absolutely shocked.
