Runner gets drilled in the groin by a pole during road race

While rounding a building along a race path recently, an unfortunate runner got drilled square in the groin by a waist-high pole.

The race (and accident) took place in Belgium, according to the Daily Mail. It doesn’t appear that the man was participating in Spartan-esque race:

The video shows the man understandably keeled over after absorbing the shot, trying to compose himself. Be alert out there, everyone.
