image for Rock 'n' Roll Marathon marred by Faintings

SAN DIEGO (Union-Tribune Staff Writer) - Three performers collapsed just hours into the 10th Annual San Diego Rock 'n' Roll Marathon in what was initially believed to be a terrorist plot against this southern California Republican Party stronghold.

The 26.2 mile event traditionally consists of a different band playing music near each mile marker to encourage thousands of runners who otherwise would likely not participate.

At approximately 9:20 am local time, harmonica-player Rick Davies of Supertramp collapsed while performing 'Take The Long Way Home' for the twenty-fifth time. Shortly thereafter, Randy Bachman and Burton Cummings (both formerly of The Guess Who) collapsed during an extended version of 'American Woman'.

Race organizers called it a "perfect storm" of events that led to the mishaps. Combining unseasonably high humidity, low oxygen levels and the aging rock-and-rollers trying to make a comeback.

Davies, Bachman and Cummings are all said to be in a serious, but stable condition.
