1 Day. 24 Hours. 1440 Minutes. That is how long you will have to push your body to its limit. To test yourself and see what lies at your core. To figure out what you will do when you reach the darkest moments and happiest hours. To punish your body and discover the depth of your soul. Welcome to 24 Hours In Waterbury - a 12 and 24 relay and solo running event (with an 8 mile "fun run" option) in the Vermont.
When the training miles and hours are logged, the course is marked, the aid stations set, and all that is left is you, on Saturday, August 28, at 9:00 AM, waiting to hear "GO," asking yourself, "What am I doing today?" there is only one way to discover the answer.
Come to Waterbury this summer and find out.
