Chuck Norris hosts 5K filled with look-a-likes

Viral News

WACO, Texas (WFLA/KBTX) – Thousands of people high-fived Chuck Norris this weekend.

Surprisingly, there were no reports of broken hands.

The legendary actor and martial artist appeared at a namesake 5K run on Saturday.

Five-thousand runners dressed up at Norris competed in the first ever “Chuck Norris 5K.”

People traveled from more than 30 states to tell their best Chuck Norris jokes and to meet the man himself.

“I went through 4 airports to get here. I started my journey at 4 a.m. yesterday and here I am and it’s great,” said one runner.

Before the race, one of the benefitting charities, Chuck Norris’ own “Kick Stat Kids” performed.

That was followed by an attempt to break a world record for most Chuck Norris look-a-likes in one place.

Then, it was off to the races, and the moment the group was waiting for: a high-five for finishing the race.

“And now I’m stronger because I touched Chuck Norris,” a runner joked.
