Several people have asked me about the 3 deaths that occurred during the Detroit Marathon on Sunday. At this point, I don’t know anything more than what’s been reported in the popular press. This article from clickondetroit.com summarizes the events that led to the deaths of 3 runners, ages 26, 36, and 65, in the half marathon event.
Autopsies are being performed today and more information should be available shortly. I’ll bet that cardiovascular causes are responsible and I’ll report back when I know more.
