Overnight Race Camping
You and your team / race crew are welcome set up a tent inside the stadium during the 24 hour race. Please limit each team / crew to one tent per team. We recommend bring sandbags or weights to keep your tent down on our field turf. You are also welcome to set up a tent outside of our stadium on the grass.
We are on a public school campus, therefore all alcohol beverages, tobacco products and all illegal drugs are strictly prohibited.
Expect the possibility of HOT and HUMID conditions. Please be prepared for hot, exposed conditions during the day. We will have ice and water but highly recommend bring clothing and products that protect you from the sun.
In the event of Lighting and Thunderstorms we will move the race into our Indoor Fieldhouse. We would continue the 24 Hour Race indoors on our 180 meter track. If the storms then clear up, we would move the race back to the outdoor 400 meter track.
In a continued effort to help our environment, our 24 hour race will be cupless. Please bring your own water bottles or cup to carry or leave at our aid station tables. We will have water and TAILWIND NUTRITION drink at the aid station for you and/or your team to refill throughout the race. Thank you for helping us in our efforts by keeping our event green.
