Record for most clean cones - new category?

Post by Steve Collins » Mon Sep 29, 2008 8:32 pm

Now that Richy has the record for 100 cones clean (congrats Richy!), the thought occurred to me that it might be fun to have another record for the most cones clean in one run. We could set 200, 300 or longer courses and see who could run them all clean. Granted it would take a very special spot to lay down all those cones but I honestly think it would be fun as hell. Who's in?

Which is more significant:

1. Running 100 cones REALLY FAST
2. Running 200, 300 or 400 cones at a snail's pace?

If I didn't get dizzy or nauseated, I could probably run lots of cones in a straight line clean. The issue, though, would be how fast? And If I run 200 cones clean in 50 seconds and Richie hits the 195th cone in 39 seconds, who has the record?

I'm just askin'

Why not running 100 Cones and hitting every 10th Cone. The Cones must be set red, white, red, white ...

OK, it's a nutty thought. Maybe to be more accurate I should have called it "challenging", which no one would dispute, rather than "fun". Still, I'll do it. I actually enjoy running cones. I'm already looking for places to set up long, long runs of cones. I'm not even thinking of straight, even rows of cones like the 100. Variation, offsets, all good. The point is as much endurance as speed, obviously. I'm definitely NOT thinking of doing it on the flat. What would be the point of that? After a couple of setups of 100+, I'll post some impressions.

Not to run out of cones, one could make circle with diameter of 50 meters and lay down there cones on every 160cm, so one round will be 100 cones. Then you just start to count rounds done without cones down :)

yeah that would be fun if two racers went in opposite directions.

or they could go in the same direction and the faster racer could try to lap and pass the other racer
