HCMC – A runner of the Ultra Trail 2020 international marathon, which is taking place in the Central Highlands city of Dalat, was found dead this afternoon, June 20 after he was swept away by floodwaters triggered by downpours.

The victim, identified as Thai Don Thanh, was running across a section of the Golden Stream in Lac Duong District’s Da Sal Commune when the 40-year-old resident of HCMC met with the accident, Sai Gon Giai Phong news site reported.

The government of Lac Duong District told Tuoi Tre Online that due to the heavy rain on the same day, floodwater levels rose sharply, while the runners were competing in the rain.

After the accident had occurred, the organizers of the marathon suspended the competition and used vehicles to transport runners back to the starting point.

Over 6,200 local and foreign runners are joining the Dalat Ultra Trail 2020.
