It's the only opportunity you'll have to run a race that is 19, 38, or 57 toilet paper rolls long, and if you want to take on a bigger challenge, you can sign up for the 19K Ultra Race!

JULIE SMITH

"I did this run with my family.  None of us had a way to measure how far we'd gone so we just used a fresh roll of toilet paper.  Rolled it out, ran to the end, rolled it up, rolled it out, and so forth.  In hindsight maybe we shouldn't have done a trail run.  The stream crossings were really tough to measure...."

MAT SMITH

"I was a little confused at first, but it finally clicked and it all worked out in the end.  The kids and I had plenty of time to construct the teepee in the backyard.  It was actually a good bonding time. Maybe we shouldn't have done the ultra because running around the teepee 2345 times left us all a wee bit dizzy.  I'd recommend the single ply."

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: What do toilet paper rolls have to do with the distances?
A: We did a little research and found out that:  1 Toilet Paper Roll when unwound = 302 feet.

In keeping with the "COVID-19" theme:

19 Toilet Paper Rolls = 1.08 miles -- Single Ply Distance

38 Toilet Paper Rolls = 2.16 miles -- Double Ply

57 Toilet Paper Rolls = 3.24 miles - Triple Ply (a real thing!)

​And we added in a 19K distance for those who want to run a little further.
