LOS ANGELES — Fans of “Baywatch” busted out their best red swimsuits and tried to recreate the slow-motion running scenes the show was famous for over the weekend in Los Angeles.

To promote the upcoming “Baywatch” movie, Paramount organized the Slow Mo Marathon — a “grueling” 0.3 kilometer race that had be run entirely in slow motion.

“Carbs for dinner and new shoes aren’t going to give you the edge this time,” organizers said on the Facebook page for the event. “The winner will be the person who demonstrates the greatest ‘Baywatch’ flare in slow motion — leave nothing to chance — hair, outfit, slow motion style, we want to see you go slow like a pro.”

The winner received “possibly the greatest prize ever presented in a sporting event” — a trip to Miami for the “Baywatch” premiere.

Baywatch” will be rated R and is set for release on May 26.
