China loves its themed marathons. Whether they involve piglets, tomatoes or nudity, races like these always make the (in our humble opinion) grueling activity look like the most fun ever and usually result in participants showing up in some oddball costumes seemingly unrelated to the event. This human vs. dog race held in Hunan yesterday was no exception.
The concept is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. People are put against dogs on a 50 meter track that (somewhat upsettingly) ends with a cage at the finish line.
Of course, Spiderman made his standard appearance at the event.
It almost wants to make us go run a marathon but naaah maybe next year.
