How this race works...
Runners have 1.5 hours to run a 6 mile, paved loop, aka "one lap." Anyone who finishes the lap before the clock expires gets to start the next lap. Because the race staff would like to go home at some point, there are only 17 laps, totaling 102 miles. The final lap will be an old fashioned foot race. The fastest runner on the final lap will be crowned the "Last One Standing."
If you complete 17 laps and feel like going more, be our guest and enjoy the wonderful "Mayor's Loop" as long as you want.
Kids can also participate using bikes (Kids = folks under 18 years old who don't want to use their legs). To date, there has never been a Kid Finisher. Will this be the first year to crown the Coolest Parent Standing? Register your Kids today and let them stay up late!
Rules and Race Info
We like to be transparent, so here's all the rules and information that make our race fairly awesome! If you steal our race ideas, please just be mindful and do it on another weekend, in another State. Can't say we didn't steal a few ideas ourselves.
Local time: 6:35 PM
The race takes place on a 6-mile loop beginning at Confluence Park. Participants will have 1.5 hours to complete the loop. If the loop is completed within that time the participants will toe-the-line again for the next round on the same exact loop, repeated every 1.5 hours. No, you can’t start a loop early, so don’t ask. There are a possible 17 loops totaling 102 miles for those most determined souls. The faster participants will have more time to rest before the next round starts, but that strategy could prove detrimental. If participants cannot finish a loop before the next round starts then they are eliminated from the race.
The Kids Division is a 5.3 mile loop are allowed any non-motorized means of transportation to complete the loops (including, but not limited to: bikes, scooters, roller blades, unicycles, heelys) The loop is the same loop as the adult divisions minus the small out-n-back at the beginning. Time limits for kids are the same as all divisions.
To earn a finisher medal, participants must complete at least one loop (6 miles). Success is measured by the number of completed laps, not speed, not good looks. At the end of each loop, participants will also be given buttons that can be attached to the medal that signify certain achievements. Runners who complete all 17 loops will receive a buckle in honor of their achievement. All runners are eligible for the buckle award; however,the 17th lap will be timed like an ordinary race to determine the race winners.
CAMPING / PARTICIPANT STAGING AREA - We want you to be comfortable when you’re not on the loop so we’ve blocked off the entire Confluence Park just for you! This race goes through the night, so bring your tent, chairs, and a cot if you have one. Feel free to make a home away from home during this race. There is plenty of space, but some real-estate is better than others (first come first serve basis). Your campsite fee is included with your registration. Once you are eliminated you are free to stay as long as you want and cheer on the others.
FOOD / DRINK - The race will provide an assortment of non-alcoholic drinks. We encourage runners to bring their own food, drinks, and ice. In the ultra running world this is considered "self supported", We have kept the registration prices lower than the average ultra so you can have some extra cash to stock up on your own nutrition needs.
