Palestinians hold first Bethlehem marathon (The Independent)

Palestinians and their supporters are running the West Bank’s first marathon.

Itidal Abdul-Ghani of the Palestinian Olympic Committee says some 1,000 people are participating in Sunday’s race, which includes shorter 10-kilometer and 20-kilometer options. […]

Abdul-Ghani says that because of Israel’s separation barrier surrounding parts of [Bethlehem], and its control over nearby land, there’s not enough space to do a straight 42-kilometer (26 mile) run.

Two wheelchair marathoners (one in yellow on left, one in blue on right) and to the right of them, Tiki Gelana. She is being hit by the guy in blue. There is a barrier on the left. Ahead are people watching, some taking picture. The barrier has her water on it and that is what she was going for.

London Marathon wheelchair crash leaves athletes raging at organisers:

Athletes attacked the London Marathon race organisers after a dangerous clash occurred between the men’s wheelchair racers and the elite women’s field at a drinks station around the 15km mark. The Olympic champion, Tiki Gelana of Ethiopia, was effectively taken out of the race as she ran to grab a drink, seemingly unaware that the men’s racers were coming through.

Despite an arrangement that organisers say has stood for years, Gelana seemed oblivious as she ran across the path of the racers going at 20mph, and into Josh Cassidy whose chair careered into the side of the drinks table, the Canadian slamming the table in anger and frustration.
