The Third - Presented by SWORD
SWORD Performance Products proudly presents: "Six Days in the Dome III", a World-Class, competitive 6-day ultra running race.
Run on a slightly cushioned, state of the art, 443.4552 meter indoor oval in Milwaukee's fabulous Pettit National Ice Center.
The race format will be “go as you please,” meaning each runner may run or rest at will.
In addition to the 6 Day, we will host 24, 48hr an an ELITE 24hr Invitational competitions.
Zach Bitter smashes 100 mile World Record at the Pettit Center
11:19:13! Can you believe it? Zach Bitter broke the old World Record of 11:28:03 by almost Nine Minutes!
He continued on to better his own World Record for the 12hr by completing 104.88 miles.
Congrats to Zach! Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.
Many National Age Group records also fell at the Pettit Center. Check out www.run6days.com for complete listing.
Elite 24hr Invitational added
NEW for 2020 will be a very limited entry Elite 24hr Invitational.
In order to allow for super fast performances, the field will be limited to 30.
Those individuals meeting the qualifying standards as outlined in the www.run6days.com website will compete for prize money, and most importantly, have the opportunity to post big miles or fast times in pursuit of World or National Records.
This should be a great vehicle for making the 24hr US National Team.
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 2020
You can feel confident that your efforts won't be in vain, as we have Brandon Wilson, of ultratimingpros.com, as the Head Timer. Brandon is a USATF Official, and a Grade A course certifier.
