On April 22nd, the world will be introduced to an evolution in the field of sport. A marathon, but a marathon like no other. The Baywatch SlowMo Marathon, a grueling 0.2km that must be run entirely in slow motion. Come down, see the cast of Baywatch and put your body, heart and mind to the test. Zac Efron and the cast of Baywatch will be on hand to host this first ever SlowMo Marathon, which will take place in Downtown Los Angeles.
Dwayne Johnson also took to his Instagram page today to send out a special video where he spoke about this upcoming marathon. Fans who are interested in running in this "marathon" can visit the official event page on Facebook to sign up, with the race taking place Saturday, April 22 at L.A. Live (800 W. Olympic Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90015). Here's what Dwayne Johnson had to say on his Instagram page below, revealing what the lucky marathon winner will receive.
"You heard it right. We're kicking off the world's first ever .5k #Baywatch Slow Motion Marathon! The slowest and sexiest person to cross the finish line at LA Live on April 22nd is coming to our big Baywatch movie premiere. Train hard, this is going to take some patience, creativity and fun.
