Brendan Morphet was leading the Yukon River Trail Marathon by 15 minutes and victory was well in hand, until he was confronted by a dangerous roadblock: Two grizzly bears.

Morphet rounded a corner in leg three of the race alongside Chadburn Lake where a steep hill was on one side and a sharp drop-off to the lake was on the other. In front of him on the trail were two grizzly bears.

"I yelled and yelled," Morphet told CBC News. "They wouldn't go anywhere."

Morphet backed away out of the bears' line of sight and waited for a bit, and then tried again. One bear remained defiant.

"I figured, 'Eh, maybe I'll go yell again, maybe it buggered off,' and as I came around again, I could see it making its way toward me, kind of doing a little run, and then I just, I was gone."

Morphet began backtracking and ran into Jody Eikelboom, who was running the relay portion of the race, and another relay runner. Both began backtracking with Morphet.

Then they ran into Denise McHale, who like Morphet was running the full marathon and was in second place at the time.

"I had just started the first kilometer or two of leg three," McHale told CBC News. "Then there were three of them coming back toward me, the runners, so I'm like 'What are you guys doing? Are you lost?'"

McHale continued on without incident and wound up winning the marathon with a time of 3:24:52. Morphet took second place at 3:26:51.

"So he kind of got ripped off a little bit," McHale said of Morphet.

Ken Sylvestre, director of Sunday's race in Whitehorse, Canada, said nobody's time gets adjusted for detours such as this one.

Good dog finishes Australian half marathon, earns medal, gets taken to dog jail

  Good dog finishes Australian half marathon, earns medal, gets taken to dog jail 94 participants ran Australia’s Ellery Brookman Goldfields Pipeline Half Marathon earlier in July. The typical finisher had approximately 2.02 legs. The average was thrown off by a local stray dog named Stormy, who met the runners before the race and then, citing a light schedule of licking himself and sleeping for 18 yards that day, decided to join them. Stormy ran the course diligently, hitting every checkpoint and finishing with an estimated time of 2:30 — good enough for a top 70 finish. Despite not wearing a bib, the very good dog was recognized for his efforts, earning a medal for running 13.1 miles despite stumpy legs “This dog is walking around, making itself known to all the runners. We get the air horn out and say ‘Go’ and off he goes with everybody,” volunteer coordinator Allison Hunter told Australia’s ABC News. ”Speaking with all the aid stations and marshals later, we found out he stopped at every single one.” Stormy didn’t get much time to revel in his accomplishment, however. Rangers took the canine from the finish line, which is a pet-free zone, to the pound after no one claimed him at the end of the race. He’ll spend up to seven days in dog jail waiting for his owner to pick him up. Organizers were told the good boy is a year-old resident of a local Aboriginal community who doesn’t have a single owner, but knows everyone in town. If no one claims the rugged half-marathoner pup by the end of the week, he’ll be put up for adoption.

"Well, it's a wilderness race," he told CBC News. "There are bears. We've had bears before.

"We want to be as clear as we can that there are bears out there and individual runners have to be comfortable dealing with that."
