Run the Good Race

Q: What race is never run?
A: A swimming race!

Explanation: Thank you to a swimming friend who sent me this joke.

This explanation will be short, maybe abut 50 meters, the length of an olympic swimming pool.  Yes, I know, the Olympics did not start this past week because of the COVID-19 pandemic.  I hope you are staying healthy!

If you race someone in a pool, a swimming race, you are not running. You are swimming. Of course this joke could have other answers such as a car race, a spelling race, … you get the idea.

This joke is funny because the idea of a race that is never run makes people think of running.

Here are the top ten swimming races from the 2016 Rio Olympics (according to the author of this video):
