Bonus points if he just kept running after the finish line
Rob Pope followed Gump's 15k mile journey across the United States to help raise money for charity.
Love how he added a new beardy wig every 5km so he finished with a GREAT BIG BUSHY BEARD
Hope he remembered his nipple tape
We saw this movie as part of my ninth birthday party. My neighbor, who was two years younger than me at the time, started crying during the scene when Forrest was talking to Jenny at her grave. We all made fun of him cuz that's what boys do. Truth be told, I was fighting back tears, too. So J. Miller, if you're reading this.....sorry bro. Shit was deep and I just didn't know how to handle, ya dig?
Wrong shoes though he needs those cortezes son!
I WAS RUNNAING
One day I just started running
Well, he certainly wasn’t going to run dressed as Lt. Dan.
I always thought this was
I have a running outfit too.
I was watching Forrest Gump with my sister after breaking my foot doing a flying kick off a table.
It was during summer break. Anyway, we got to the part where he runs with his leg braces and goes so fast and hard his braces fly off.
At that scene we looked at each other, looked at the cast on my foot, looked at the TV, then back at each other.
We both understood what needed to be done right then and there. She ran for the front door as I hobbled out behind her.
We went to the middle of the street and my sister gave me a pep talk. Something along the lines of "the pain is all in your head", "you can run ths injury RIGHT OFF!", "YOU GOT THIS BRO! DO IT!".
I was really pumped up and ready to break free as Forrest had. I heard the inspirational music in my head. I slowly got down into the starting position that runners do. Sister gave a count down
With fire in my eyes and soul, I took a big step forward ready to hit the ground running. As soon as my casted foot hit the ground we both heard a crunch, and I crumpled to the ground, writhing and crying in pain. I fucked up my foot even further, and my sister had to help me back inside.
Funny memory that we banter about every now and then. Thank you Forrest Gump.
I must have drank me about 15 Dr. Peppers starts running to the nearest bathroom

Trivia...Tom Hank's brother Jim was the actor doing the running in the wide shots.
When I was in the Army Aaron Totten-Lancaster, Operation Anaconda vet, ran a 5k with an outfit like this:
Guy was quick too. Ran like a 15 min 5k.
This is Rainier to Ruston. There was an entire Forest Gump relay team! Here's a : photo of the entire team. The bearded one really ran with the beard the entire time! Total dedication.
That looks fucking miserable lol
There’s an amazing number of people in this thread that do not get the reference. I feel old now.
He’s really going the extra mile, buttoning the top button.
I met a guy at during the marathon last year dressed as Forrest later on in his cross-country run. I swear, finding Forrest in a marathon field is like playing running Where's Waldo.
To me this looks disturbingly like Joe Biden wearing a MAGA hat
That boy sure is a runnin’ fool.
I am pretty sure he won the race
One day I just felt like running...
I loved Jennay
"I'm pretty tired. Think I'll go home now."
Run Forest! Run!
Guy’s packing HEAT
Virtually every marathon I run there is a Forest Gump.
RIP his nips.
"Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get."
That’s not a race, those are his followers
In fifth grade I wore an outfit similar to that, only my shorts were jorts. I wore it to basketball tryouts. I didnt make it.
I hope he brought a beard in his pocket for the end of the race
So I'm an idiot and thought this was just someone's dad running the race.
Jennay my nipples are bleeding jennay!
Run Forest Run
Hoooooly shit. Trump stole Gump's hat!
Make America Gump Again
The chafe 😱
Rumor is from that day on, if he was going somewhere he was running!
i just felt like running
There goes my hero, watch him as he goes!
Took me a second to work it out.
Run forest run
Run forest, run!
Lieutenant Dan ice creaaaam
RUNN FORESST FUCKİNN RUNNN
I thought for a second he was running for President
Run forest run!
I was running (in Forrest Gump’s voice)
Edit: misspelled gump lol
You can't win a marathon without putting a few band-aids on your nipples.
Those shoes are not meant for running. Dude went all out for this costume.
My name is Gump...Forrest Gump !
Did a 53 miles relay race called Rainer 2 Ruston.
There was a 3 man team of gumps. One just like the picture, one with the long hair, and I think the third one was shrimp boat Gump.
How in the FUCK is his shirt still tucked in!?
Run Forrest! Run!
I know that dood
Nah man, if he was committed he would have the beard.
I just kept a runnin an a runnin an a runnin... I don know why. I just wanned to. So I did. And then people....
I just thought if someone ran in the one where Forrest has the beard lol
When you’ve got a marathon at 6 and got to drive your truck at 6:30
False. I was at the McGuires St. Patrick’s Day 5K Run in Pensacola, FL this year and a guy was dressed as Forest Gump, pushing his paraplegic friend in a wheelchair dressed as Lt. Dan. They win.
So, here in Argentina we have a big costumes party which takes place once a year, something like Tomorrowland but with costumes. I was told it is something special, where most of the people take their character very seriously and most of the inhibitions go away.
Well... The first time I went, 15 minutes after arriving I saw a guy dressed like OP's image, emulating Forrest Gump's iconic scene, running with like 20-or-so people behind. I couldn't believe how bizarre the situation was, and just clapped at him. An hour later, I encountered him again, still running but now with beard and more than 50 people behind. I couldn't resist and joined for about 15 minutes.
Fast forward to a couple hours later... HE WAS STILL FUCKING RUNNING. With and even longer beard, covered in sweat and holding a box of chocolates and a beer. Legends says he left the party running... We will never know, but I'm sure he deserves a place in the podium.
Saw this post while watching Tom Hanks speak at CES, so a little weird
I first thought it was Trump but then i realized it was Gump.
Increíble ver a saltillo en el front page de reddit!!!!
No Nike Cortez? No commitment.
He's just running from work
There are guys (usually old) who do this at my gym too. It’s reeeeeally weird.
Only 90's kids will get this
Poor dude needs to undo that top button
i wish he had the cortez's on
He's not wearing a pair of Nike cortez's
I met the president aaagaaaiinn.
