Video for mobile:

(NBC NewsChannel)-- Two men in Canada experienced a close-encounter of the bear- kind, and caught the whole thing on video.

The men were finishing up a run in Fort McMurray, Alberta when an unexpected visitor decided to join them.

A black bear began following them and got a little too close for comfort.

The men backed away from the bear, and avoided making eye contact with it as they made their way back to their car.

After being tailed by the bear for a few minutes, the two men finally gained enough distance to make their escape.

They ran back to their car and finally finished what may have been the most memorable workout they've ever had.
