    More than 500 runners participated in Anytime Fitness’s Anything is Possible 5K early Sunday.

    It wasn’t exactly time travel, but runners did record negative times in a 5K race in Bethesda, Md., Sunday morning.

    More than 500 runners participated in Anytime Fitness’s Anything is Possible 5K. The race began at 1:50 a.m., and thanks to the end of daylight saving time 10 minutes later, they crossed the finish line before that.

    The first runner to finish did so at 1:07 a.m. for a recorded a time of -43:00.

    A percentage of proceeds from the race will go to Hope for the Warriors -- a nonprofit supporting combat-wounded service members’ families and the families of those killed in combat -- and Team Red, White & Blue, which aims to improve the lives of wounded veterans and their loved ones.
