Race Details

Tom Mays

To “finish” you must be on the course throughout the event. You cannot leave the park and return later. This is a time-based event with a goal, not a distance event. You must be on course at 6:00pm!

What is the “course”?  The course includes the roped off area behind the scoring table (the drop bag location), the marked trail, and the restrooms.

Sometime after the 11th hour, there will be a shorten lap of less than a mile.  (due to the festival this will be measured out during the race).

At 10:00 am, there will be a 5k that will use some of the course. Pacers are welcome after the 5k is completed. (approx 11:00 am)
You will need a flashlight or headlamp at the start of the race.

All registrants will receive a t-shirt. You must pick up your race packet to receive your shirt. No shirts will be mailed. 

All finishers that travel upon the course for the full 12 hours will receive our cool finisher medal.   

We are working on a customized SECOND FINISHER AWARD. Details to come. 

We will have awards for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers in both the male and female divisions. In case of a tie, the first runner to cross the finish line for their last lap will be awarded the place. 

Meet some new friends and have a great time while making a valuable contribution to the local running community by volunteering at this event. If you would like to help, please contact the race director(s) (below), and we’ll be sure to find a job for you!
