Marathon Man,Y U UNBEATABLE?

The Running Man is just a total boss that is somehow able to torture players by always beating them by exactly one second. He's the pure definition of a troll and a sign that Nintendo hates us all.

No, I'm just kidding. The Running Man was intentionally designed not to be beatable, most likely to help increase our skills of traveling across Hyrule quickly so that the trading sequence would be easier.

If I remember correctly, the Running Man was originally supposed to be some sort of sidequest that would have been added in via the N64DD. However, since it was a failure in Japan, they couldn't really do what they wanted to do with him.

It's great that even if you freeze the clock at 0:00:00, when you go to Kokiri Forest, he will still say he beat you by a second. :xd:
