With different state & county guidelines and various levels of comfort racing in-person, we want to offer an alternative to the in-person Twilight 12 Hour event on April 24-25, 2021. Run any time starting at 7pm Saturday, April 24 until 7am Sunday, April 25. Just like Twilight 12 Hour, run as much or as little as you like in that given time frame! If you are interested in winning a stay at Flying Horseshoe Ranch's Log Cabin, track your run with a watch, phone, etc and make sure to take a few photos along the way!
Swag // Prizes
Every runner will receive a Walla Trails & Community special Twilight 12 edition coaster by Paul Clement/Elastic Laser. The design is by Lariat Creative who designed the original Walla Trails & Community logo.
Most miles - In true Twilight 12 Hour fashion, there will be a king AND queen of miles. Whoever runs the most amount of miles will win a night (or two depending on the season!) at Flying Horseshoe Ranch's Log Cabin. Photo contest - Not a fan of running at night or solo or either? Submit your favorite photo with your route! You are still eligible for the same prize - a night (or two depending on the season!) at Flying Horseshoe Ranch's Log Cabin.
About Flying Horseshoe Ranch
I started going to Flying Horseshoe Ranch when I was a camp counselor for the YMCA of Greater Seattle back in 2008 and then took over the YMCA's horse camp in 2013. I watched countless kids and staff fall in love with this ranch every summer. I was thrilled when owner Penny Blackburn agreed to let me hold a night run in 2016 - now Twilight 12 Hour. This ranch has touched the lives of so many people over the years through camps, weddings, family reunions, 4-H groups, and so many more. The cost to run a guest ranch of this quality is mind-boggling. Join me in helping offset some of those costs in these difficult times!
PLEASE BE SMART ABOUT YOUR ROUTE - Planning a safe route at dusk/night/dawn could be tricky given the current circumstances. It is also based on people's comfort level. Twilight 12 Hour was created for people to practice night running in a safe and fun environment. This feels like the opposite of that so here are a few ideas that count (and would get some serious props for doing): Neighborhood loops, hill repeats (OOF), running on trails not closed to public, etc. If you run with your spouse, kids, or running buddy, that's fine but only one submission per person. Please adhere to the social distancing policies in your state. Check out the website page for all the details and/or email Gretchen at email@example.com
