If you’ve ever watched Naruto, you’ve probably noticed how the characters in the show run — with their arms stretched straight behind them. This method has garnered some interesting reactions from people (e.g. why do they run like this?) and even spurred some events online where people can meet up and run shinobi style. Well, in Vancouver, one such event was scheduled and, surprisingly enough, a crowd did show up at the tear drop sculpture by the Vancouver Convention Centre this afternoon to ninja dash along the city’s famed seawall.
So, how did it go? A handful of participants actually manage to hold up and made around the seawall to Science World on the False Creek side, and up to Kitsilano on the southern edge of English Bay. Others weren’t as energetic and stopped for a bowl of ramen instead.
But it was a great way to get outside, enjoy the sun, exercise and be with others who enjoy the Naruto series, and most importantly, have fun.
