The Endurance Trials race course is a looped sub-1 Mile course with a slight elevation, located within West City Park, in Festus, Missouri. The course is an asphalt loop (.76-.77 Mile, elev. 11ft) nearly 90% flat,that circles its way around the Soccer/ Baseball Fields and a small Fishing Lake to 'that one hill', a relatively mellow hill, but after a few hours will eventually challenge you.

In a 6-hour 'timed' event, some top runners can achieve 30 Miles or more, depending on conditions.
The top 12-hour runners will likely continue on beyond 50 Miles, possibly 70 or more.
Some participants will have a crew to help them, but most often participants will just set up a camp-style setting with all their gear and supplies that they'll need near the START area - accessing it each loop.
Occasionally, 'timed' events will be combined with varied time formats, i.e. 6-, 12-, and 1-hour events, and, at times, even some 24-hour runs.
Uniquely, the ENDURANCE TRIALS will host a 6-Hour (2) person 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.
Entry fee, Professional Chip Timing service, Race t-shirt, custom awards (limited) and Meal/ Aid Station Foods will be available during and after the race.
Bring pretty much whatever you feel will help you through the day:
Canopy, Tent, Tables, Chairs, Families, Friends, Pets, Games for the kiddos, Heaters, Coolers, Radios...
It's gonna be an ALL-DAY affair.
