To Fuentes Family: my deepest condolence, i am hoping that you'll find justice for Remus.
To the organizers: Making lapses in organizing the event could be very FATAL, it's not acceptable! AArrrrggghhh.. There is no trading options if life is in the discussions.
And to my fellow runners, hoping that this kind of incident may not happen again and serve as a reminder to be more careful, always remember that race is not about racing someone, but it’s about racing yourself. Run with purpose. Run with heart.
