Donald Sanborn was running the Garden Of The Gods 10 mile run race in Colorado Springs when a furry interruption happened. A black bear crossed the road while the race was under way. The bear took advantage of a gap and disappeared into the bush.

Taking pictures of the bear cost him a bit on time but Donald’s shots are going viral.

In Spain, they have the running of the bulls, in Colorado, they may have the running of the bears.
