Get ready to chase some skirts

It's a little sexist. But it's also apparently a lotta fun.

Here's Raleigh's Skirt Chaser 5K in a nutshell: All the women who pay the $50 to $85 registration fee get a running skirt (only $35 to run if you don't want a skirt ... but doesn't that kinda ruin the moment, ladies?). Women take off first, most wearing their new garment; the guys are let loose three minutes later. Voila -- boys chasing girls wearing skirts, with the first-place finisher taking home $500.

The battle of the sexes -- scheduled for this Saturday, May 23 -- is followed by more flirting at a block party in Raleigh's Glenwood South area that includes free food, beer, live music and dating games.

By the way, the founder of this national racing series is a woman: Nicole DeBoom, who runs this company and is the creator of the fitness running skirt.

This is a great idea. I'm down. If enough people from the Charlotte area want to run it we should carpool. You know save the environment and stuff.
