Bear Surprises Runners By Briefly Joining Colorado Race

Runners in a Colorado race relived the infamous scene from "Without A Paddle" when they were joined in the road by a black bear.

Participants in the Garden of The Gods 10 Mile Sunday, in the Colorado Springs area said the bear appeared at the side of the road before running out in front of a group of runners.


"Why did the bear cross the road? To scare the runners and make me lose precious time in the middle of the race!" -Donald Sanborn wrote after he captured a few photos of the bear's unexpected appearance.

No one was hurt--except a few final times crossing the finish line.
