A Timely Running Experience
Timely Nonsense brings the traditional 6 hour/12 hour timed events into the city. The race will be held at Horner Park where runners will spend their allotted time running a .75 mile paved loop path around the park. Horner Park is a 58 acre park located at the intersection of California and Montrose.
There will be one aid station at the Start/Finish. It will be stocked with your typical ultra fare. At Horner Park there is also vendor selling hot dogs, popsicles, sodas and almost every ultra treat you can imagine.
Race start time is 7am for both times.
There is a team option available. You can sign up as 2 person relay team or 4 person relay team.
There will be 10 challenges given the day of the race that you can choose to complete the day of the event. These challenges will involve shenanigans. Runners that complete all 10 challenges will get an extra prize.
Join the Curious Ultrarunner’s Secret Society for a fun day in the woods. Be sure to join the Facebook Group to get in on the Chicago Ultra Marathon challenges leading up to the race.
Curious Ultrarunner’s Secret Society was established to inject a sense of whimsy into training calendars, split times, and fartleks. Our goal is to build a community that creates a space for the individual to fall in love with the magic of running.
Mission: To help others fall in love with ultrarunning
Vision: To make you and the world slightly better through laughter & pain
BIPOC & LGBTQ+ Entries
One of the things we strive for is to create inclusion and equality in the running
community. As much as we want to say that all you need to run is a pair of
shoes, we know the reality is much more complex.
To create intentional space for people, we have a number of free entries for our
races that we would like to extend to BIPOC and LGBTQ+
athletes. We would like to emphasize that these are not need based or
scholarships. These entries are an affirmation of belonging in our community. We
are not in any way publicly advertising who accepts an entry, and you do not
have to be an out member of the LGBTQ+ community to receive one. We are not
questioning or asking for additional information from anyone who asks for a code,
they will be handed out as long as we have funding to do so.
If you would like a code, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org . We
have earmarked funds for both BIPOC and LGBTQ+. Please feel free to share this offer with friends.
Entrance Policy for Transgender Athletes
We will accept each entrant’s declared gender at face value, and no additional supporting
evidence is required. Athletes may register as the gender they identify with.
Entrance Policy for Non-Binary Athletes
People whose gender is not male or female; including but not limited to: genderqueer, agender, bigender. We want to acknowledge, respect, and provide opportunity in the registration process to express their desired pronouns. Please email email@example.com after registration and we will amend our records as Ultrasignup does not currently have that option.
