It's not mad at all. If you look at the statistics, that year was an exceptional one. Since the Great North Run started in 1981, there have been seven deaths (four of which were in 2005).

When you consider that there's typically 50,000 runners each year nowadays, it hopefully demonstrates that these incidents are very rare.
