Thousands dress as Chuck Norris for 5K


Thousands of people high-fived Chuck Norris this weekend, and surprisingly there were no reports of broken hands.

The legendary actor and martial artist appeared at a name-sake 5K run in College Station, Texas on Saturday.

5000 runners dressed as Chuck Norris competed in the first ever Chuck Norris 5K.

People traveled from more than 30 states to tell their best Chuck Norris jokes and to meet the famed martial artist and actor.

Before the race, one of the benefiting charities Chuck Norris’ own “Kick Start Kids” performed, followed by an attempt to break a world record for most Chuck Norris look-alikes in one place.

Then, it was off to the races, and the moment this group was waiting for; a high five for finishing the race.

“And now I’m stronger because I touched Chuck Norris.”

The race organizers are submitting the world record attempt photo to officials. It will be some time before we learn if that record was broken.
