Results: The 4x8urrito was an enourmous success. Nearly 50 people participated in this first ever exhibition event and atleast as many showed up to watch. There were many fantastic displays of eating and running skills and some not-so-fantastic displays of holding it down. It was an experience that no one will soon forget. Thank you to everyone who helped the event run smoothly, especially those who helped clean up the track.
The event was won by the WJ4x8INDOORSTATECHAMPSWORD, an all-star team made up of Ben Fowler, David Simms, Peter Novick, and Andrew Jesien. The team finished the relay in a time of 21:46, an average of about 5:27 per leg.
The 8urrito relay MVP was Cedric Dana of the Wootton Burritos. Dana wolfed down his entire Chipotle burrito in an unbelievable time of 1:40, putting his team in fantastic position after the first leg. He was easily the fastest eater of the day.

The first participant will grab his partner's burrito and run 800m. At the conclusion of 800m, the first participant will pass his burrito to the second participant to be completely eaten inside of the exchange zone. This continues until all four participants have eaten and run.
