LOLz! We can't believe this is an actual problem… but it is!
The Hong Kong Marathon has BANNED runners from taking selfies because it caused a HUGE crash! Cut that shizz out people! This getting ridiculous!
Remember the moment by living in it to the fullest; don't whip out your phone for a vain shot for Instagram!
It's not worth the runner pile-up, like during last year’s event when a woman stopped at the beginning of the race to take a picture of herself, which triggered a domino-like effect of people crashing into each other! The woman should ALSO be banned from races for trying to pull something like that!
To prevent this an any other ridiculous result from thinking you need a picture of every moment of your life, organizers have banned runners from using cell phones at next year’s event!
Here's what the race chairman said:
“What we’ve been trying to do is to get the message across to take care of yourself and to take care of other runners. For the race itself we will have officials to hold some message boards to remind people not to take photos at the start, on the route or at the finish because it is dangerous.”
Every single race in the world should adopt this!
Next up: restaurants banning your pics of food! LOLz!
