Despite receiving warnings from local authorities , the organizers of the Original Mountain Marathon (an exxxtreme endurance event in England, to be exact) plowed forward with the race this weekend. Unfortunately, they didn't have Bud Selig's weathermen on staff, so they had to switch the race midway from an exxxtreme endurance event to a search and rescue expedition for 1,700 racers lost for nearly a day. All have supposedly been counted up since then. Thankfully, everyone had survival gear with them. Video after the jump of the mountain swim.
