NEW FOR 2024! 10-DAY RACE OPTION!
Brand-new this year - we're offering a 10-Day race option, from June 13 until June 23. 240 hours to run, walk, skip, hop, jump or perambulate in unique climate-controlled conditions - you won't find a better place to put up big miles than The Pettit Center's indoor track!
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 2023
Mike Melton is the Head Timer.
Zach Bitter smashes 100 mile World Record at the Pettit Center
11:19:13! Can you believe it? In 2019 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 fall each year at the Pettit Center.
