Texas Town Holds .5K - not 5K - For "Underachievers"

Sign me up!

April 26, 2018

Nope, that's not a typo! This Texas town is holding a .5k (not 5k) race for "underachivers". 

"A possibly fully staffed, or not staffed at all, (a) medical tent will be in place, you know, just in case. 546 yards is nothing to take too lightly," the event's Facebook description reads.

Of course, beer will be provided, and participants get a free pint at the start of the race. Finishers will also receive a "pretentious" 0.5k sticker to put on their windshields.

In case runners get tired, a coffee and donut station will be set up at the halfway point for carb-loading and energy. This is also the designated smoking area.

As for signing up, bad news - the event is full. There's always next year though, so start training!
