Zach Broussard has spent a good deal of time and resources for large scale silly projects, which always peaks our interest.
His latest endeavor is taking marathons down a peg or, more accurately, making them way shorter so anyone really can say that they ran a marathon.
What he has dubbed the “New York Sorta Marathon” will be a race, if it raises $8K by next Friday, that’s so short that most people on Earth could finish it without any training or even breaking a sweat.
See how short it is in this Kickstarter video. Also, take note of the great stretch goal of being able to pay a professional marathoner to finish last.
