The Impossible 5K

On November 8, 2010 · 0 Comments - won't you be the first?

I was watching the Weather Channel on Sunday morning — yes that’s something I do for fun, thus proving I’m a geek on so many different levels — and they cut to a story on an event called "The Impossible 5K." My wife is a runner and I pick up a lot of new counties as I follow her from race-to-race. The feature grabbed my interest as I learned more. Now I know we’ll have to head down to Kennesaw, Georgia someday to participate. By participate I mean I’ll stand there with a beer preferably while the wife runs.

The Impossible 5K coincides with the change from Daylight Saving Time to Standard Time, looping twice around the inner Ring Road of the Town Center Mall.

Why is this The Impossible 5K? Because the race starts at 1:50 am before the time changes. Runners are still on the course when the clock moves back an hour and they finish the race before the time they started. Now that’s my kind of race! This demonstrates, once again, that people enjoy these little oddities when they’re packaged correctly.
