Many people live to run, and prefer to stay fit running marathons for life. Other people who are unable to run because of age, medical condition or lack of training in the sport, come out faithfully to watch marathoners as they run their long races. But when the marathons are loosely run, there can be pedestrian injuries and accidents during the course of the races.
How Are Pedestrians Injured During a Marathon?
People can be injured by being at a marathon as a pedestrian. Some of the ways people are injured include:
- Not enough markings for runners, and runners going wildly into crowds
- Not enough barriers to keep crowds away from marathoners
- No marathon handlers to tell pedestrians when they can cross streets or marathon paths
- No markings on marathon paths
- Intermingling of crowds and marathoners at loosely marked turns
- Marathoners not given water at designated stations
- Marathoners not able to cross over freely for water stations
- Crowds excited and getting into the path of marathoners
- Marathoners not respecting etiquette when dealing with crowds
- Marathoners passing out and pedestrians trying to help
- Lack of medical people near the marathon to help participants and Good Samaritans helping the marathoners but getting injured
- Other pedestrians holding out signs and getting into the path of marathoners, causing them to fall on onlookers

Who Is Responsible for Pedestrians Getting Injured at a Marathon?
The race handlers and organizers are responsible for pedestrians getting injured during a marathon. The way marathons should be run, the marathoners should be given a race packet, a gear check and told where the start and ending of the race will take place. There are also requirements that the marathoners are given information as to the aid stations during the race, in order to minimize any interaction with the crowd. The well-meaning crowd can do harm and damage to the marathoners and vice versa, if there is no one to manage how well the pedestrians and marathoners interact one with the other.
