We know many people can run 26.2 miles, but have you ever tried to run further in a single day? There is no better time to do something you'll remember for the rest of your life—on Feb 20-21 discover what you're made of by participating in the 24 Hours of Richmond. Your mind, body, & grit will be put to the ultimate test when you set out to discover just how far you can run in 24 hours. Accept winter’s toughest challenge & run with us!
You can complete your miles anywhere you want, including on a treadmill! This is about how many miles you (or your 4-person team) cover and not the speed in which you cover them!
You can run 1.1 miles every hour to complete 26.4 miles in one day. Easy! Now let’s say you want to sleep for 8 hours and only be active for 16 hours. You still could run/walk 1.65 miles per hour for 16 hours and you would still reach 26.4 miles.
Plan your 24 hours so you’ll have time to eat, hydrate, shower, change clothes—how you choose to tackle this event is up to you! You can rack up big miles and then brag about it with your great participant swag!
Full results will be ranked by mileage completed. You will just need to keep track of your mileage with an app (such as Strava, Run Go, or Trailfork) to validate your total distance. Remember, total distance includes any mileage accumulated between 9:00 am on Sat, Feb 20, and 9:00 am on Sun, Feb 21.

Our goal is to start shipping participant swag by mid-March. We will provide any updates on our website.
