Runner’s Joseph McGinty and Bryan Crnkovic demonstrated the true strength of the running community during the annual Philadelphia Love Run half marathon, on Sunday.

The two runner’s saw the exhausted participant struggling towards the end of the race, and her helped her cross the finish line.

One of the runner’s, picked up the woman and carried her in his arms for a section just before the finish line, where they helped her to finish the half marathon on her own.

The video has now reached over 20m views.
