                         6 hour event, teams can be 2 or 3 runners

Charity Benefactor: Riverbend Park / Battlefield Park 

Registration: RunSignUp.com

Packet Pickup: We do packet pick up race morning at the park

Several Volunteers are still Needed!  

A COVID Race Day Waiver will be required to be filled out and approved before you're permitted to participate. 


Relay Info:  Teams can be up to 4 people for the 10 hour and up to 3 people for the 6 hour.  Each team will be given ONE Bib with a timing chip attached, which can be worn on a race belt for easy transfer between team members ( race belts will be supplied ).  Two or more team members can run together, however you'll only get credit for one loop. This way a team of 3 can compete equally with a team of 4 runners. The team in each event with the most miles wins!  Each long loop will be 3.5 to 4 miles.

Loop Size: For this event we use 2 different size course loops the "Long" loop and a "Short" loop.  Since we have a time limit there is no way the timer could measure partial laps on a 3.5 to 4 mile course and get results posted within our time limit. We will run the Long loop till hour 5 in the 6 hour event and hour 9 in the 10 hour event, then if you're not able to complete another full loop you can switch to the Short loop ( .85 miles ) to get extra mileage in the final hour. Only completed full loops count, if the clock runs out and you're 10 feet from the finish line, that loop doesn't count!
