Finally, a fun run that’s really fun ― or at least really short, There’s a doughnut stand about 150 meters into the run — it’s next to the smoking section. This run isn’t the typical five kilometers. On May 5, the town of Boerne, Texas, plans to hold its first ever “Boerne 0.5K” run. It’s only half a kilometer, a third of a mile.

At least close enough, he added, “that we can lie and say that it is “exactly” half a kilometer. Not only do you get a free beer at the start and end of the race, there is a doughnut and coffee station about 150 meters into the course, right next to the smoking section, http://NPR noted.
