On October 9th, runners competing in a race were venturing onto a mountain in Salt Lake City, Utah, only to be found in extreme weather conditions.
Out on the mountain, the runners found themselves stuck in 12-13 inches of snow.
After realizing 87 runners were stuck in a blizzard, the sheriff suspended the 50-mile race at around 9:30 am.
Rescuers and research teams were out looking for the group for several hours. The bunch was found around 2:45 pm. A few of the members had caught hypothermia out on the mountain. Other than that and a few minor injuries, the group was rescued and safe at last.
