The Elkmont Trackless Train Half Marathon in Alabama received a surprise entrant when Ludivine, a two-and-a-half-year-old Bloodhound accidentally joined the race after being let out for a pee.

After a pee-break, Ludivine saw hundreds of people running and thought it looked like a really fun game! Intrigued, she quickly decided to join in the game and ran along alongside the competitors. Ludivine set off with the athletes, proceeding to run the entire 13.1 mile circuit.

Runners in the marathon said that she went off track on a number of occasions, even taking detours to explore interesting smells. However, that didn’t stop her from coming in 7th place in just over an hour and a half.  She even was received a medal for her efforts and her owner, April Hamlin was surprised.
