Man dies after completing marathon
A man died Sunday after collapsing at the finish line of a half marathon in southeastern England.
The unnamed man, aged in his late 30s, was rushed to the hospital after collapsing at Reading’s Madejsi Stadium, home of English Championship soccer team Reading FC.
Doctors were unable to resuscitate him, The Reading Chronicle reported.
"This is deeply upsetting and our thoughts are with his family and friends at this distressing time," a statement from race organizers read.
The 13.1-mile race was completed by more than 13,000 runners.
