World’s Least Challenging Athletic Event Ever

by Chris Butsch
Eastport Bridge Run

It’s dubbed by many observers as “the least challenging athletic event ever conceived.” More than 20 years ago, the Maritime Republic of Eastport started a race to symbolize their “independence” from Annapolis. Their impetus came when the Maryland State Highway Administration closed the Spa Creek Bridge, which connects Eastport to the rest of Annapolis.

In May, Eastport citizens commemorate their independence by running one-twentieth of a kilometer to freedom, during the Eastport .05K Bridge Run. The 30-second race had its 21st annual running this year. For $20, entrants can register and help support a local charity each spring.
