Bear enters Colorado foot race
Animal was able to safely get through runners
Runners embarking on a foot race in Colorado Springs, Colo., were surprised when a bear entered the race about halfway through.
The Associated Press reports Donald Sanborn, who was about 5 miles into the Garden of the Gods 10 Mile Run Sunday, says the bear emerged and seemed to consider how to get through the runners. The bear eventually found a gap large enough to get through.
Sanborn says he's seen various wildlife during training runs, but has never seen a bear during an official race.
