Runner spots disturbing detail in unsuspecting image of her in forest

Runner spots disturbing detail in unsuspecting image of her in forest

She didn't notice anything until looking at the photo later

A woman taking part in a 100-mile run through an Hawaiian rainforest was left feeling creeped out after looking back at some photos from the event.

Over the years, there have been countless experiences of people saying they took a seemingly normal photo only to look back later and see something lurking in the background - like these ladies who were on a hen do in Scotland and managed to accidentally snap 'The Blue Boy' or the couple who were ‘photobombed’ by a ghost in London.

And keen runner, Kay Borleis, has had a similar experience while she was taking part in the Hawaiian Ultra Running Team’s Trail 100-Mile Endurance Run on the Honolulu Mauka trails in Oahu back in January 2019, when she unknowingly had the weird encounter.

The race, which is given the rather menacing acronym HURT 100, sees participants running a 20-mile loop through dense rainforest five times. Sounds pretty painful to me.

Borleis was running with her friend Cassie, who was working as a pacer, who decided to take some snaps during their run to send to loved ones.

In one photo, Borleis can be seen clad in her running gear making her way along a muddy-looking trail with a lush green forest behind her.

However, later that night when looking through the photos, they spotted a figure they were both certain hadn’t been there when they ran through.

Taking to Reddit, Borleis said: "My pacer took this photo.

“Notice the figure in the frame to the left of my head. We never saw anyone passing us and there were no statues along the trail.

"It is NOT photoshopped or made. This is legit.”

Borleis went on to say that the race had taken place the day after a lunar eclipse, which she thinks may have boosted the odds of it being something supernatural.

If you look closely, a figure that appears to be wearing some sort of cloak can be seen to the left of the shot - despite Borleis insisting there had been no one there at the time.

After seeing the photo, Borleis and her friend did some research and think they know what it was they came across.

She explained: “According to legend, there are ghosts of Hawaiian warriors that roam the island and they’re called Night Marchers.

"They are, ‘murderous shades, demons, revenants that haunt the island. They are the rabid galvanized specters of ancient Hawaiian fighters, heroes, and warriors’.

“Upon further research, we found out that, ‘ancient Hawaiian tenets assert that any mortal gazing upon or being viewed in defiance to the marchers will die horribly and violently. Some people declare that if the mortal lies still, down on the ground, prostrated to the marchers they are giving proper respect, fear, and reverence to the Night Marchers; and they will be forgiven and spared.’”

“Luckily, we did not see the supposed Night Marcher.”

At the time of writing, the original post has been removed.
