It's a new 24 hour race!
Get ready for a new race in 2023 from Happy Cat Events! The Greensprings 24 will be Saturday, October 28 starting at 8am and finishing 8am the following morning. This 24 hour endurance race can be whatever you want it to be. How many miles can you complete? Can you reach a benchmark goal like 50 miles? A marathon? Run, walk, crawl...your choice. Will you reach the pain cave and give up or push through? Awesome volunteers will be helping you make the right choice!
Those completing 50k, 50 miles, 100k, 75 miles and 100 miles will get special awards. Awards will also be given to the top 3 overall male and female, top 3 masters (40+) and top 3 grandmasters (50+).
This race is a loop course. Each loop is 2.10 miles (certification pending) so 15 loops = 50k, 13 loops will = a marathon or do 6 loops for a half marathon. You can do the math from there. Only full loops will count. The course will be marked with reflective confidence streamers. The surface is crushed gravel, the trail is mainly flat, scenic, non technical. There will be porta potties at the loop check in and lots of food options. We will be grilling all night! It will be like a party but...different...more tears and pain than a normal party.
This race is to benefit The Arc in Williamsburg, VA. This is a wonderful inclusive organization offering programs to adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities. For more info: https://www.thearcgw.org/
There will be an option to donate at checkout, but it is also encouraged to collect your own donations. Set a goal and get your friends and family involved! Donations can also be made on race day and the following week after.

Grab your friends!
Want to wrangle together a team? AKA talking your friends into doing something crazy together for a good cause...When you checkout there will be an option to enter a team name. Teams are unlimited and each member will need to register separately. We will track mileage for each team and there will be a prize (and bragging rights) for the team that accumulates the most mileage in 24 hours. Misery loves company!
