The record I saw when I did it was 23 minutes. That's still at least 13 minutes longer than it needs to be.

Oh, I don't know, maybe to make it more like a Triathalon?

Which would be fine if the game was a Triathlon simulator. It isn't though.

Tapping a button for 20 - 30 minutes is not fun. Especially when a random event ****s you over near the end.

28 minutes for me, that was way too long for me anyway. THANK ****!!!!!!! I finished and won first time because there would be no ****ing way that I'd do that all over again.

My thumb almost died on this. I literally paused it twice to recover.

I don't get this complaint. If you think it's too long don't do it. It was put there for the people who actually want to tap A really fast to run across san andreas.
