In two days in my sleepy town a police cordon as someone had decided to set themselves on fire, and a man tipped over on his mobility scooter after trying some extreme off road. Was waiting for another fire incident to get the full emergency services set.

This wasn't on a run, but was whilst cycling along the High Peak Trail........I saw a stoat kill a bunny with a proper back of the head death bite. It was kind of extremely horrible, yet fascinating at the same time

I saw a group of 10 deer on my last run.  Nothing particularly unusual about that, except that one of them was white.

I once found a completely intoxicated Irish man passed out with his head an inch or so from a stream.  My running partner pulled him out by his leg ... we made sure he was still alive before jogging on...

I was on the Tring 2 Town race a few years ago where one of the lead runners found a dead body by the canal.  Unfortunately all the rest of us found was police tape and a diversion.

Must be horible to find a body.

In one week:

 Run diverted due to car accident, then second run diverted due to suicide,  then third run delayed after assisting coastguard with body found on beach on misty day. The last one survived a heart attack.

I had a week off the next week.

Lots of dead birds this past week. 3 wood pigeons 1 black bird and a robin, bit odd to see that many in a week.

On the North Downs Way this evening, a small scene of playmobil characters arranged around the foot of a tree, with a sign saying 'Gone fishing'. Not particularly close to any houses that I could see. Very weird

Dead cat on Sunday's run, lying by the side of the path.  Freshly dead as it hadn't been nibbled or started to decay.  I didn't notice it on the way out, just on the way back.

A flash mobile phone with a dead battery in the middle of a common. Took it to the police station, they managed to locate owner, who asked them to ring me up and say thankyou wery much.

A dead cat and a set of clothes on my last run. It was obvious the cat had been run over but had no ID or anything to contact an owner. The clothes were just plain random. A set of nicely folded clothes by the side of the road.

I run on country roads that are close to the motorway and my city, in the lay bys on those quiet lanes I see numerous big business cars with the windows steamed up lol

Mr boss man and his secretary, I always make sure I knock on the window as I run past if they don't see me coming
