We are pleased to announce the 11th Annual Nanny Goat 12/24/100 is the flagship event in the new Wild Horse Racing Series and your Race Directors are Shelli Sexton and Rachael Kadell. For ten years, the Sexton family have hosted the Nanny Goat 24-hour race on their private horse ranch located in Riverside, California. Shelli and Rachael are delighted and honored to continue the tradition with dates, times, and venue the same as it has been for the last ten years but with a fresh new feel and some added fun for the kids.
The race takes place over Memorial Day Weekend on a one-mile dirt loop on a private horse ranch located in Riverside, California. The ranch is owned by the Sexton Family. The goal is to complete as many laps as possible within the allotted 12 or 24-hour period, either solo or as a relay team of up to 4 runners. A 100-mile option is available with a slight price increase for those who want to tackle their first 100 miler. All 100-mile entrants must complete 75 miles by 8:00 am on Sunday. Those runners may continue until reaching 100 miles or until 2:00pm.
The course is flat, the footing is good, and the trail is wide enough to allow easy passing. Support is never more than a half mile away. Camping is available within a few feet of the course and space is allocated on first-come basis. The 24-hour race will start on Saturday morning at 8:00 am and will end on Sunday at 8:00 am. 12-hour runners may opt for a daytime or night time 12-hour segment (8:00 am to 8:00pm on Saturday or 8:00 pm Saturday to 8:00 am Sunday).
Swag will be presented to all entrants. Tech shirts, cups, hats, mugs, etc. There will be medals for all, regardless of how many loops you complete with buckles for 100-mile finishers. If you're a legacy runner looking for the next buckle in the series, Old Goat Emeritus Steve Harvey will have it for you at the finish line.
In addition to race food and beverages provided in the transition area, there will be popsicles on Saturday, a Saturday afternoon BBQ, and a Sunday morning breakfast for runners and race volunteers. Crews, spectators, friends and family members may enjoy the BBQ and breakfast for a $20 fee ($10 children 12 and under) payable online or at the event; wristbands will be given to those who purchase the meal plan.
