Bendigo’s annual Oh-God-Why-Am-I-Doing-This Run has taken place, with many participants wheezing and staggering their way through the course.

“Puff, puff, puff, bloody View St, puff, puff, puff, bullshit,” said one optimistic and woefully unfit Bendigo resident.

The Oh-God-Why-Am-I-Doing-This Run brings together the delusional to shuffle through distances ranging from Stop-At-The-End-Of-The-First-Street-Bugger-This all the way up to That-Is-Too-Far-How-The-Hell-Does-Anyone-Do-That.

“Puff, puff, I could really use a frothy,” said the same optimistic and woefully unfit Bendigo resident.

The idea of the run is to bring the Once-Were-Stars out into the open and remind them that they’re no longer capable of their youth.

“Puff, puff, puff, may, puff, puff, Bendigo, puff, puff, hills,” pieced together the optimistic and woefully unfit Bendigo resident.

The Oh-God-Why-Am-I-Doing-This Run is a fundraiser to bring in revenue to pay for all the sporting injuries, heart attacks, and disappointment suffered by Oh-God-Why-Am-I-Doing-This Run competitors.
