Relay teams of 4-8 runners will set up base camp and settle in for 24 hours of camping, eating, challenges ...and running. The course is a scenic 6.2 mile route that will be repeated for 24 hours....as many times as each team can pull it off. The team who runs the most laps wins.
Instead of renting vans, following an assigned order, and stressing to make exchanges, teammates will run in any order and when not running, enjoy the comforts of their campsite and Race Central just south of the course entrance.
The relay begins with a mass start at high noon on Saturday August 1st. At the gun, the first athletes of each team will head into the pine forest. The first mile takes them through 'Dem Bones' trail up to the 'Steer's Head Loop' with slightly rolling, unpaved terrain that offers tranquility and great views. When returning to the buzz of Race Central, the athlete will hand off to their next teammate....and so it goes until high noon on Sunday, August 2nd. At the conclusion of the event, athletes will party at the celebration BBQ complete with festive beverages.
"There are a lot of elements that we're excited to have the athletes take part in. The meadow above the ranch is wild and beautiful - there's plenty of room to spread out and enjoy camping with friends and have some quiet if you need it. We'll be providing a couple of meals for the athletes as part of their registration fee, and will be offering challenges throughout the weekend to give everybody a chance to win special prizes". Those special prizes include hot tub parties (yes, there's a hot tub on the rugged meadow), hot showers, wine & cheese receptions, and merchandise from race sponsors."
Raise the Bar Events is committed to producing safe, impeccably-marked, high-hospitality events. "We love connecting with athletes at our races and giving them the best possible experience - we guarantee equal parts challenge & fun."
Registration is open for the inaugural RUN for 24. Early competitive pricing at $129 per adult ($79 for athletes under 19), assures it will be an event that will deliver beyond expectations.
