While many people, even experienced and very well trained runners, can fall to heart abnormalities while running, especially in extreme conditions, these events are much more likely to happen when you take unfit and significantly underprepared individuals and throw them into a race. When will people step up and end the “you can do anything” mentality and change it to a more responsible “you can do it but first you have to prepare” message? I suppose never, it's more fun to just say you can do it than it is to tell someone to do the hard work to prepare adequately.
