Leg infection stalls ultra-marathoner Israel Trail run

After 10 days of running through predominantly desert, ultra-marathoner Richard Bowles was forced to take a break from his complete Israel Trail run on Friday afternoon.
Melbourne-based Bowles, 34, was slated to finish the 1,009- kilometer Israel Trail, from Eilat to Kibbutz Dan, in the span of 12 days, covering 83 to 84 kilometers each day.
A leg infection, however, has necessitated at least a temporary rest period for the runner after he finished 600 kilometers
