Simple Does Not Equal Easy

Join Columbus Running Company virtually at 12:00 PM EDT on Sunday, May 30, 2021, for the Find Your Limit Virtual 1/4-Mile Challenge - HOT DOG EDITION and find out what you're made of (probably hot dogs, let's be honest). This isn't your standard running event. Not. Even. Close. Somewhat similar in concept to our Find Your Limit Virtual Mile Challenge, here we're taking some things (running a quarter-mile and eating a hot dog) that seem pretty simple and making it progressively more difficult (doing both every 5 minutes). 

The Find Your Limit Virtual 1/4-Mile Challenge - HOT DOG EDITION is a "last person standing" event designed to stretch your limits mentally, physically, and also the limits of your stomach. The premise is this: every 5 minutes we start a new quarter-mile "race". If you've completed the prior "race" in under 5 minutes, you get to continue. Each "race" consists of two parts: 1) eat a hot dog (WITH BUN), and then immediately after that, 2) go run/walk a quarter-mile. The challenge continues with repeated 5-minute-limit races until there is only one participant remaining. The final runner must be at their start line and complete the final "race" to be the Find Your Limit Virtual 1/4-Mile Challenge - HOT DOG EDITION Champion. How far can you go before your mind, legs, or stomach says "STOP"? 

When does the event end? This event begins at 12 PM and ends once we have only one competitor remaining. If you're in a different time zone, you still start when we start. Plan accordingly! All event times and pre-race meeting times are listed EDT! 

Full event rules are below in the "Everything You Need To Know (We Think)" section. They're simple, but they are required. Read them, know them, live them on race day.
