Hot Dog Eating Contest Division

How many hot dogs can you eat in 76 seconds?
Well… if the answer is 5, you won’t have that option!  Here are the rules:

This event will be a 76-second hot dog eating contest.. with a twist ... or actually a run!

Classic Nathan’s FamousTM eating rules will be in effect:
These are rules of a contest that allow for a food item to be separated, dunked, and mashed in an effort to consume the most hot dogs.

Participants will be given 4 hot dogs and buns to start. There will be two 32 oz cups of water for dunking or drinking, mustard and ketchup on the table for the contestants.

Should a participant be observed hiding their hot dogs, dropping them under the table, or placing them on another participant’s plate he/she will be disqualified. Participants who suffer a reversal of fortune and/or urges contrary to swallowing will be disqualified (and possibly laughed at).i.e. vomit.  Once the 76 seconds are over and everybody is running reversal of fortune will not be monitored.

The “Chipmunking Rule” will be in effect, which means that all food to count must be swallowed 30 seconds after the 1-minute buzzer. Those who are found to be in violation of the “Chipmunking Rule” will be penalized 1⁄2 a hot dog.

Each participant will start the 5K run once the 4 hot dogs are consumed or the buzzer goes off, whichever comes first.

Judges will determine final amounts eaten counting what is left on each plate.  Each hot dog that is gone will take a minute off the finish time. Percentages count as well.  ☆BONUS☆ Any participants who finishes all 4 hot dogs before the buzzer goes off will get double the time reduction – 4 minutes will be taken off their time!

The event is limited to a total of 10 participants.

The male and female winners will be awarded the Firecracker Heavyweight belt.
