CRAWFORD BLOG: Somebody put tacks on the Ironman course? Really?

Posted: Updated:

Oldham County's wrap-up email on last weekend's running of the Louisville Ironman came along this afternoon, and the event ran smoothly with very few exceptions.

But one of them is just mind-blowing.

Somebody took it upon themselves to spread roofing nails along the race route on US 42 between Bluegrass Parkway and Highway 524 East. And not only did they do it, they did it TWICE between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Oldham County police tried to track down the idiots perpetrators with unmarked units.

Several bicycles and an EMS unit suffered flat tires as a result of the action.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Oldham County Police.
