The men, Ángel Campos and Miguel Montenegro, came up with the idea of the race as a joke, but as the idea grew, it turned into a reality. The race3 is almost 4K long (3,850m), and the winner will get the grand prize of two melons.
“It all started out as a bit of a joke,” Campos told Spain’s English-language website The Local. “I was in my friend Miguel’s bar after I had completed a run, and he suddenly said, ‘Why not put on a race just for bald people?'”
The joke was that Montenegro has a full head of hair, and was poking fun at the bald Campos.
Along with the first prize melons, the second place winner will take home a dozen free-range eggs, and third place winner will get a light bulb.
To win a prize, however, the runner must be naturally bald—no shaved heads allowed. At least 24 runners are expected to take part in the race.
