5. New York Hot Dog Challenge

The New York Rogue Runners’ Hot Dog Challenge is the fit man’s version of Nathan’s annual 4th of July hot dog eating contest. The challenge demands a three-to-five-mile run, depending on  through Central Park and Times Square with stops at nine to 11 specific food carts, at which runners must purchase and scarf down a hot dog. This year’s winners took home over $250 in cash.
