    Pic #7 is classic. Those guys are like “WTF man”.

    I can understand how that happened though. That mat must have been slippy, and at 2+ hour run (at maximum effort no less) his legs must have been spent. His legs probably wasn’t ready for the surface texture of the mat and thus the slip is possible.

    How is this funny? The guy ran for 2 hours and then hit his head off the ground. I'm all for fail compilations but those are people doing stupid stuff, not running marathons and slipping at the end.
