Hoffman, NC Marathon, 1/2 Marathon

This Event Took Place Sat. Jan 1, 2022

The Drop Zone events are on for January 1. 2022. We will be in a new location that is near Hoffman, N.C. Make sure you click the icon above and read the information on my website before signing up.

Come with no expectations and you will not be disappointed!

Registration will end online December 30 at 11:59p.m. or when we have 50 participants. There will be no late registration and no registration at the event.

The Setting

If you are afraid of the dark, running alone, need lots of spectators, and just generally not self-sufficient, read no more. Go somewhere else. Or run the half marathon and finish before dark. But, if you're up for a night of running under an open sky, then this is your place. On a cloudy night, it will be the blackest place above ground within 100 miles. On a clear night, you will be astounded at the stars. Both in number and brightness there is no better place in central North Carolina to see them. The Sun will set at 5:16 p.m. and the Super New Moon (the dark moon) will be almost here. We have the potential to have the darkest race night we've ever had, so we should have a spectacular starry night!


The 2022 Drop Zone events are almost fat ass. If you want to be included you must register online at UltraSignup before the deadline. No pacers. Everyone who runs must register. Fluids provided. Some snacks but not enough. Bring your own food and put it on the aid table to share with everyone. No shirts. No awards. Nobody to hold your hand. And no dogs!

Registration fee is $20. All entrants who show and complete at least one lap will have their $20 refunded in cash race night. No refunds for no shows or any other reason. No bib transfers or any of that kind of business either.

Local time: 5:39 AM
