Town hosting 'underachiever's' .5K race

BOERNE, Texas (WCMH) -- A town in Texas is hosting a “Running event for the rest of us!” featuring a tongue-in-cheek exhausting 0.5K race. 

“Join your fellow underachievers for a day (actually more like 10 minutes) of glory, celebration and participation trophies to raise money for a great organization, Blessings in a Backpack!” states the website runsignup.com.

The Boerne 0.5K is scheduled May 5 with runners receiving a free pint of beer after they finish the roughly 1,600 feet race.

“All finishers will receive a pretentious oval Euro-style 0.5k sticker that you can attach to your rear windshield to show everyone what a badass you are,” the website offers as an incentive. 

Unfortunately, if you were hoping to take part in the race, you’re out of luck. It is full.
