Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time's "Running Man" Thread

How does one win the race against ‘Running Man?’
I can’t let it go.

I might not be remembering correctly, but I’m not sure you can. If you can, it would be by using the rabbit ear hat. I think I’ve even tried the horse once and I still lost.

Let it go, Dr. Dog. You can’t beat the running man; no matter how fast you run you will always lose by 1 second.

Nintendo has specifically stated that there is no way to get ahead of him.

Let it go, you can’t beat him.
Why they put something like that in the game I don’t know.

Just once? I always used the horse, and I still lost. Had some good racing times, though.
