The Kimberley “Racing the Planet” Ultrmarathon has been cancelled after 4 runners suffered serious burns when they became trapped in a gorge during a bushfire. The competitors, 2 men and 2 women, were running through the gorge during the 100km event when a fire whipped up and caught them by surprise, leaving them with nowhere to hide. Both women have suffered 60-80 percent burns to their bodies, whilst the 2 men have 10-20 percent burns. This event was suppose to showcase the Western Australian region to the world. Thoughts and prayers.
