During their training run, the pair would get an idea of the kind of terrain that they would be facing during the event. The landscape was rough and rugged, which no doubt added to the challenges facing Blake and Scott.
The pair were planning to complete the full 31-mile course around the park, so they put their heads down and got to work. Halfway through their run, however, something caught their eye. And it was so shocking that it forced them to abandon their training session.
You see, Blake and Scott were making their way down a wooded track when they spotted a pile of black fur. Upon further investigation, the runners could make out five tiny bodies. And despite the bitterly cold temperatures, the animals were still alive.
