Jeans required. No shirts allowed.

Edmonton Thunder Track and Field Club called it “Jeans 400.” The rules were clear:

It is simple, one lap of the outdoor track or two laps of the indoor track, from a standing start, wearing nothing but you most stylish jeans and footwear of your choice (spikes, runners, flats, work boots, slippers everything goes). NO shirts (ladies are allowed to wear a sports bra, if they choose to), no cut offs jeans, no synthetics, no knock offs. Jeans must be 100% full length denim. And of course the objective is to win! As in fastest time takes the title!

And the laugh out loud statement: Cause running in jeans makes you look extra fast!!

The dates say 2007. They called it an “inaugural” event. Emails went unanswered. Joggingjeans.com readers are wondering if this awesome event is still around.
