Eerie figure in runner's Hawaii footage sparks 'nightmarcher' rumors

An ultramarathon runner unwittingly encountered a mysterious figure during a 100-mile race in the Hawaii rainforest.
Back in January 2019, Kay Borleis - who has been a keen runner for most of her life - had been taking part in a grueling 100-mile race through the dense rainforest of Oahu, Hawaii.

The event is a challenging one to say the least and Borleis ultimately had to pull out of the race when she injured her foot during the second lap of the 20-mile route on the Honolulu Mauka trails.

The strangeness began when, upon returning home, her pacing partner Cassie sent a number of photographs taken during the race out to her friends and family.

It wasn't long before one of them noticed something unusual in one of the pictures.

It turned out that the camera had picked up a mysterious figure who had seemingly emerged from the foliage next to the trail, even though neither Borleis nor Cassie had noticed him at the time.
"The reason why no one was on that part of trail is because all runners had to run in a clockwise direction," she later wrote on her blog. "And tourists weren't out that early. We didn't see anyone for hours while running together. So, we were - and still are - positive there was no one there."

After doing some digging, Borleis discovered a local legend concerning deceased Hawaiian warriors called Nightmarchers who are said to roam the rainforest.

These undead revenants are reportedly so terrifying that mortals cannot even look upon them.

But could this really be what they captured on camera ?

You decide.

Drop bear, you know how we don't have any good pics of Bigfoot or UFOs or anything like that? Well I was thinking about something even more rare so do you happen to have a screen shot where you didn't lean paranormal on your silly meter?
