During London Party mode, when the player faces off Rouge, they compete in this sport


This events starts with each of the players' characters being announced, before showing them on the starting line. Before the race starts, the player is able to hold B Button to charge up and get a short boost. When the word "Go" appears on screen, the player must swing down the Wii remote to start the event. Doing so with perfect timing grants the player a starting dash. The player must then constantly shake the Wii remote as fast as possible to cause their character to run. However, the player needs to jump with B Button to get over hurdles or lose lots of speed. The player is also able to perform a special dash at any point in the event to give their character a short speed boost by pressing A Button. When the player approaches the finish line, they can press B Button to lead with their chest which also provides a small speed boost. Toad and Espio appear as referees in this event and alternate between being at the start and end of the running track.
