U.S. 24-Hour Team Qualifier

If you intend to qualify for the U.S. 24-Hour Team, please let us know. The Raven will be run on a rubberized track that is eligible by USATF. The event is also sanctioned by USATF, making it a valid qualifier for the U.S. 24-Hour Team.

Timing

You may leave the track at any point in time during the race, but you must stay inside the fence and you must return to the same place before continuing. You may not leave and return directly by the timing equipment to avoid double counting a lap. Every 4 hours we will change the direction of travel. Your number of laps, distance, and race will be shown on an electronic display near the start.

Race Course and Facilities

The course is a USATF certified 400-meter rubberized track located at the Town Hall in Mt. Pleasant, SC.
The track will have lights on through the night, so runners should not need to wear a headlamp. Two porta-potties will be located near the track to ensure that competitive athletes can quickly and conveniently access restroom facilities.

The gymnasium, which has men's and women's restrooms with showers as well as a kitchenette, will be open during the event. The kitchenette is equipped with a fridge, coffee machine and microwave that we are welcome to use.

Aid Station

The aid station will have water, electrolyte drinks, sodas, and foods (such as PB&J, gummies, chips, and bananas). There will be limited hot foods consisting of broth, soup, quesadillas, omlets, and coffee. Athletes should take care of their own special dietary needs and bring any additional food items they require.

Results

All entrants will be registered for the 24-hour event. Entrants will receive results for their 100-mile split (if they reach that distance) and their results for the full 24 hours.
All national records achieved will be reported to USATF for ratification within 10 calendar days from the conclusion of the competition. All world’s best records performances will be reported to the IAU for ratification within 10 calendar days from the conclusion of the competition.

Volunteers

We cannot produce this event without the help of an amazing volunteer team. If you would like to join our volunteer team, we are looking for help with event setup, main aid station, timing, and event breakdown.
