Hot weather halts marathon
The Green Bay Marathon was halted around mid-morning Sunday after about 20 runners went to local hospitals due to heat problems.
All but one were treated and released. Officials said the one who was admitted had some mental confusion.
The race started around 7 a.m. with a temperature of 70 degrees and 63-percent humidity. It was almost 80 by nine o’clock.
Ten marathon racers, five men and five women, received official times, although many runners did not adhere to warnings and completed the course.
Over 7,400 runners took part. About 3,600 had finished by the time the race was officially halted about two-and-a-half hours after it started.
Most of the finishers had taken part in the half-marathon. Medical director Jeremy Metzler said the runners’ safety was the main factor.
