Who among us hasn’t gone through life asking its critical question: “what can we do that’s fun and stupid?”
That’s how the Sandlot Marathon was born, KARE 11’s Boyd Huppert revealed Sunday evening.
A group of runners in Elk River held their second Sandlot Marathon, which consists of running 26.2 miles around a baseball diamond.
It took about 3 1/2 hours.
They did pause for a seventh inning stretch.
