Heres the idea:
1 million dollars for 1st place 850k for second and 750k for 3rd place
A crossfit style (running ONLY) competition.
The idea is to find the best runner at ALL distances Day one sprint distances 100 / 200 and 400m
Day 2 800 1600 and 1 mile
Day 3 5k and 10k
Day 4 - The marathon
Who in the world would see emerge as top 3 in the world with a pointing system like crossfit across all events?
Who would be able to sprint there A$$ off and run a fast marathon?
