Race Event Details
WELCOME Ladies & Gents - We are excited to announce the first ULTRA-event ever held in Jefferson County, Missouri.
Local time: 4:30 PM
The JCRC - Jefferson County Run Club is hosting our first timed event. Our 1-, 6- & 12-hour event is formatted primarily as an ultra-marathon, in which a competitor runs/walks as far as they can in a given 1-, 6- or 12-hour period.
The Endurance Trials race course is a looped sub 1 Mile course, with a slight elevation within West City Park, in Festus, Missouri.
an Asphalt Loop (.76-.77 Mile, elev. 22ft) is nearly 90% flat. As the course circles its way around the Soccer/ Baseball Fields and small Fishing Lake to 'that one hill', a relatively mellow hill, that after a few hours will eventually challenge you.
*FAQS: In a 6-hour 'timed' event, top runners can achieve 30 Miles or more, depending on conditions. The top 12-hour runners can go beyond 50, possibly 70 or more.
Some participants will have a crew to help them, but most often participants will just set up a camp with all their gear and supplies that they need near the START area to access each loop.
Occasionally, 'timed' events will be combined with 6-, 12-, and 1-hour event, and even some 24-hour runs. Uniquely, our event will host a 6- and 12-hour RELAY format. Within a team of runners, each member will complete a succession of mileage throughout their given amount of time specific to their registered race distance.
See how far can you go: in 12 hours, 6 hours or 1 hour
RUN, WALK, or just Hang Out!
Registration includes: Entry fee, Professional Chip Timing service, Race t-shirt, Custom awards, Meal/ Aid Station Grub availability during and after the race.
