The Lehigh Valley Health Network Via Marathon came to a halt Sunday when a train in Allentown, Pa., blocked off the course, bringing runners, personal records, and paces to a standstill.
This would really suck. The worst part from the delay would be having to motivate yourself to start running again:
The video claims that a few impatient runners crossed the railroad through the gaps in the train, although the clip doesn’t show any of them. No one was injured, according to Lehighvalleylive.com. Norfolk Southern Railway, the company which told organizers that there would be no traveling trains during the marathon, is looking into how a train traveled through the marathon.
