"Twenty-one people running a mountain ultramarathon have died in northwestern China after hail, freezing rain and gale-force winds hit the high-altitude race"


The runners were not dressed for winter-like conditions, many wearing short-sleeved tops.


Some runners farther along the course had fallen off the trail into deep mountain crevices


Another survivor was quoted as saying most victims were "gods" of the sport who were frontrunners in the race.
