In the final stretch of the Philadelphia Love Run Half Marathon one woman had a runner’s worst nightmare: She was almost collapsing from the fatigue the race put on her body. With runners everywhere passing by, two men stepped in to help her cross the finish line.

Video was shared by FOX29 of the moment when the men literally picked her up to carry the runner to the finish.

The story got picked up by various outlets, from USA Today, to BBC News, to ABC News. Everyone loves a good story of sportsmanship, and running is definitely a hub for that!
