Has Stunt Running Jumped the Shark?

No one loves novelty races more than Running Is Funny, but we might be reaching the limits of their entertainment value.

The beer mile is quickly becoming an elite sport, and the world’s premier joggler does TV commercials for a hotel chain. Now we have runners combining the two.

Michal Kapral – of TV ad fame – recently ran a beer mile while juggling in 8:48.77. Here’s video of his feat.

Alas, his world record lasted less than three weeks, as Graydon Snider completed the task in 8:34.

Next logical step: A joggling beer mile while dressed as a superhero.
