Revolution Running is excited to present the third annual All Comers track event THE STINGER. This is a timed event with 6, 12, and 24 hour options that will be held on an outdoor 400 meter USATF certified RUBBERIZED track at Hampton High School. If you think you have that special kind of crazy to run around in circles for hours then come out and see if you can handle THE STINGER.
The track has been measured at 400 meters with course certification number GA18001BW. All races will begin at 8 AM. The 12 hour will have the option to begin at 8 AM or 8 PM. The 6 hour will have the option for Sat at 8 AM, 2 PM, 8 PM or Sunday at 2 am. You will choose which time at checkout.
You and your crew are invited to camp out in the infield and set up your own aid/crew station. We will also have an aid station with the usual aid station food and drink as well as a grill for burgers and hot dogs, or whatever else we get a request for. The stadium bathrooms will be open and this year we will have porta-potties on the outside lanes to limit any extra distance.
Due to limited space on the track and USATF rules no pacers will be allowed. We will change directions every 3 hours. .
We will have a buckle for all who complete 100 miles. Check out the pictures above for the design. Prize for top 3 male and female in each event will be a unique flask! Awards will be mailed out after the event. All participants will receive a long sleeve t-shirt.
Race proceeds will benefit the Hampton High School Cross Country team!!!<
This race is 30 minutes from Hartsfield International Airport (Atlanta). The best local hotels will be just 10 minutes away in McDonough, GA.

This year we will be partnering with the local running club Atlanta Southside Runners to provide crew for those who are coming from out of town and need assistance. This will be for 24 hour runners only. When you sign up just shoot us a message and we will partner you with one of our local runners who will be glad to help take care of you during the race. This will be provided on a first come first serve basis. We can also provide tables for those coming from out of town. Because the race is close to the airport Uber/Lyft should be an affordable option to get to your hotel.
