called the "stade" which was simply a run from one side of the "stadium" to the other. It was a single race...and, by some accountings, all the contestants were required to compete in the buff. Happy

That was on the History Channel, or similar one, about the race, but I forgot.

But I didn't know about the "stade" part. Thanks!
