The 800m in track in a endurance race that requires alot of training and strategy, the 400m......not so much.

Con

Since this is a undebatable topic to anyone who can do math, I plan to troll this.

Rules
The 800m race give free KFC.
The 400m race has giant boulders falling out of the sky.
The 400m race requires racers to carry giant beanbags on their faces while juggling pumpkins.
The 400m race has music from this site: www.youareanidiot.org playing in the racers' ears the entire race.
The 400m race requires racers to click this link: www.tinyurl.com/debateDDO 200 times while racing.

Other than that,

If those were the rules...... THE 800 WOULD STILL BE HARDER, and by the way are you really 70? i am not a multi of bossy burrito

All my opponent says is that "The 800 would still be harder" but has no argument of why. Today I will prove that the 400m race would indeed be harder.

Remember, the rules are:
The 800m race give free KFC.
The 400m race has giant boulders falling out of the sky.
The 400m race requires racers to carry giant beanbags on their faces while juggling pumpkins.
The 400m race has music from this site: www.youareanidiot.org playing in the racers' ears the entire race.
The 400m race requires racers to click this link: www.tinyurl.com/debateDDO 200 times while racing.

Contention 1: Boulders




Now those are falling out of the sky. So unless you have super powers like this guy:


Then those rocks are going to be a big distraction.

Contention 2: KFC
KFC is magical! It gives the racers extra energy! After they eat it, they will be running like this guy:



Contention 3: Beanbags and pumpkins
Imagine this on your head:



Now while that is on your head, try doing this:


Yeah, it would be pretty hard racing like that.

Contention 4: Music

Seriously, just go to this site: www.youareanidiot.org
Now imagine that playing for the entire race. Yeah.

Contention 5: Link
Click it: tinyurl.com/debateDDO
Now click it 200 times.
Now click it 200 times while racing a 400m race. Yeah.

Conclusion
The 800m race is easier.

@nyyfan

Have YOU ran track? A good 800m pace is roughly your 400m pace, only you do it TWICE.
Throwing events<Sprinting events<Distance events
In terms of difficulty, that is generally how it goes. During my time with High school track, it was an EASY day for us distance runners when our coach told us to join in on a sprinter's hard day. With distance, you are expected to run multiple times more than a sprint distance, keep a hard pace, then finish with a sprint.

The 400m actually is a harder race if any of you have ever ran track, you are expected to sprint the entire event and keep roughly your 100m split times. That type of pace is not expected at the 800m level.

Reasons for voting decision: 800 if harder, I've run both events. All points to Pro for Con's trolling. It didn't matter if Pro did not come up with a case, neither did Con.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro needed to make a case for why the 800 would be harder, he did not do that, so arguments go to dustpelt. Sources to the con too for the pics.
