Pierre Lipton, who is 26 years old, started the Mesa Marathon at 6:30 a.m. on February 4, trying to beat his personal best. Lipton ran 26.2 miles at a pace of 7:15 per mile. He crossed the finish line at 3:10:05, which was a new PR.
He fell down near the ambulance just a few steps from the finish line. They tried CPR, but it didn’t work. Then they took him to the hospital. He died soon after that.
Lipton’s father, who works in emergency medicine, told the Boston Globe that “the working diagnosis is that he might have had a sudden electrolyte imbalance that caused arrhythmia.”
