(PHILADELPHIA.CBSLOCAL) — VALLEY FORGE, Pa. — A marathoner says he was fined $100 for running in Valley Forge National Historical Park during the government shutdown.

John Bell, a 56-year-old realtor, said he parked his car on Sunday in a remote parking lot, not one blocked by a barrier.

Bell, of Chadds Ford, has competed in a marathon on every continent of the world, but one of his favorite places to run is Valley Forge.

“From a safety standpoint, I like running down there, along with the scenery,” he says.
