ADDITIONAL COURSE INFORMATION
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 7:00pm!
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.
You will need a flashlight or headlamp at the start of the race.
To guarantee a t-shirt, all registrants must be registered by August 25, 2023.
You must pick up your race packet to receive your shirt. No shirts will be mailed.
SWEET FINISHER AWARD 1
All finishers that travel upon the course for the full 12 hours will receive our cool finisher medal.
SWEET FINISHER AWARD 2
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!
