True Running Stories

  The world's shortest marathon - Rather than slogging 26.2 miles, competitors in Burntwood, Staffordshire, can jog around the 55-yard marathon route in under ten seconds.
 The Great Birthday Run Scam - Imagine signing up and paying for a 5K only to realize there is no race. A new scam duped people around the country as many runners signed up for "The Birthday Run" to have a good time with live music, lights and a party. But, when race day arrived, there was no starting line.
 Runner who accidentally crosses U.S. border detained for two weeks - As Cedella Roman ran southeast along the White Rock beach, she crossed a municipal boundary - and, shortly after, the Canada-U.S. international border. When she turned around to head back she was apprehended by two U.S. Border Patrol officers. So began a two-week nightmare that landed her in a prison jumpsuit.
