Six Days in the Dome presented by SWORD Performance

SWORD Performance Products proudly presents: "Six Days in the Dome", a World-Class, competitive 6-day, 48hr, and 24hr ultra running race.

The race format will be “go as you please,” meaning each runner may run or rest at will.

The Place for setting Records

Looking for the definitive location for besting your personal records?
So were we. We literally searched around the globe for the perfect venue for setting World, National, or Age Group records. You all know the issues with the outdoors... it's outdoors! Here's your chance to run without competing against the elements. Climate controlled, 50-55 degrees, with 30-35% humidity.
The running surface is 12 millimeter Regupol Kombi brand, perfect for running.

Of course, it's a USATF Sanctioned event with a certified course- WI14001DM. The event is also sanctioned by the IAU, and was awarded a first-year Bronze Label. We look for this label to be upgraded to Silver for 2021

Mike Melton is the Head Timer. Mike is a very experienced timer, and is considered one of the best at what he does!

He continued on to better his own World Record for the 12hr by completing 104.88 miles.
