Challenge yourself, or your team of 4-10 participants, to 24 hours of running/walking around Olander Park’s scenic 1.091 mile lake. This endurance challenge is like none other in NW Ohio, and the entire course is flat, paved and contained within the park. Whether you're shooting for a late season Boston Qualifying time, the 100 mile mark, or fun miles with a group of friends, Sylvania, Ohio is the place to be on Labor Day weekend at Olander Park.

Sylvania, Ohio’s Olander Park is the former home of the 24-Hour National Championships. Participants of the Olander 24-Hour Endurance Challenge will start at 10am on Saturday morning and finish at 10am Sunday, after a scenic and entertaining 24 hours with friends, family and the holiday weekend community. Scheduled meals, safety lighting and an entertainment stage will help you get through the challenge. Tent camping will be available inside Olander for your overnight stay — at no additional charge. Spots are available on a first come basis. Register with friends and family and enjoy the Labor Day weekend outside, with all Olander Park has to offer.

Sorry. Olander does NOT allow dogs in the park.
