Wow. I thought that some sort of security or allowing runners to be armed would be part of the run.
i heard about the 16 year old boy, but now there's another death ?
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.
I bet their pace times were good before the end.
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.
How many times have bear threads come up and we
get told you don't have to worry about black bears.
When was the last time you were at a run that had armed guards?
That cracked me up. LOL
In the wilds of Alaska?
I am the only 'armed guard' I need. I'm all for gun control. If there is a gun around, I want to be the one controlling it.
People experienced with bears have told me that Black Bears are more likely to carry out an attack verses a bluff charge than other bears if they do not avoid humans.
No, just the last time you saw a race that had armed guards period. I already know you have no Alaskan experience.
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.
over and over and over. I just ignore them and carry my 20 anyway.
