Running News


Yikes!! A coyote jumped into a 5K at the Arizona AIA Cross Country State Championships last weekend. Luckily, everyone is safe.

Runners World reports that the coyote jumped into the race at the 1.5-mile mark and ran alongside the race’s leader, high school senior Harvey Nelson, for about 50 meters.

“It didn’t distract him,” Nelson’s mother Karlene said. “He just kept running.”

Nelson finished safely and in first with a time of 15:25.
