: "On September 28, Thomas Stanley was less than a quarter mile from the finish at the FlatRock 50K when a small storm hit with little notice
. Before that, the day was hot and sunny as runners traversed the limestone rock formations, hardwood forests, and prairies on the Elk River Hiking Trail in Independence, Kansas."
Het was dus een zeer plotselinge, korte onweersbui. kun je moeilijk op anticiperen.
