I've played hundreds of hours of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and never knew this footrace minigame existed

For real

I'm not quite sure when The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will stop surprising me.

It's been over two years, and still I'm uncovering things I've never seen. But I'm not talking about some esoteric beatdown strategy here: this time, it's a minigame that a lot of you have widely played, but I've never actually experienced for myself. I'm sure that at some point in the past few years I've seen this minigame with a fleeting glance, and forgot it exists. But try as I might, I actually can't recall it.

Yes, a footrace minigame, a classic Nintendo staple, is present in Breath of the Wild. As Sand_Consumer catalogs on Reddit, they nearly managed to snag a world record as they nonchalantly posted their footrace attempt: oblivious to the fact that so many people (myself included) were in awe that this act was even in the game.

You can find the footrace check-in on the map below, just east of the Tabantha Frontier. I marked it with a red circle! I'm on my way as we speak.

My best time for the footrace minigame, could have been better (#2 in the world I think, still gotta be verified tho) from r/Breath_of_the_Wild
