    What if the fastest runner can only run for 5 seconds then give up? I actually don't know. Haven't taken physics yet. That is my wild guess though.

    1) They trip and fall.

    2) They run backwards.

    3) An elephant is in the way.

    4) They get tired and need to nap.

    5) Kicked out for steroids.

    6) Hang-over from the night before.

    7) They're blind and get lost on the second lap.

    8) Cancer, in general.

    9) They're racing against horses.

    10) Deaf and didn't hear the starter gun.

    If it is a 50km walking race, then the fastest 'runner' would be disqualified.
