About the event
Registration Opens Jan 1, 2024 @ 12:00 AM
The Goosebumps 6/24 Hour Run/Walk is an exciting, fun, and unique fundraiser put on every year by the Local Lupus Alliance. The organization’s purpose is to help grow awareness and to assist local patients and families affected by the disease. You can walk or run as little or as much as you like in the 6 or 24 hour time frame. This is the perfect opportunity to test yourself; walk one loop, stop and hang out, or run the entire 6 or 24 hours and get in a half, full or ultra marathon distance. You determine your goal! Some brave souls have actively participated for the entire 6 hours putting in over 40 miles and we have runners planning on getting in 100+ miles during the 24 hour event. That is what makes our event different from other races, it’s whatever you feel comfortable with.
REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED PRIOR TO THE RACE
Event's current local time: 12:40 AM CT

6 or 24 Hour, not sure which race you want to do? We will have a cut off on switching, if you are planning on switching it must be 3 weeks prior to the event, assuming neither race is full. If you have to cancel your registration, please go into UltraSignup to cancel your registration, no refunds will be given. We understand that things come up, but we need to be considerate to other runners and the volunteers to make this the smoothest and best experience possible for all. ALL REGISTRATION WILL BE CLOSED WHEN RACE CAPACITY IS MET (200 for 24 Hour, 100 for 6 Hour), OR MIDNIGHT SEPT 1ST, OR WHICHEVER COMES FIRST. SORRY, NO SAME DAY REGISTRATION.
If you plan on leaving the loop for an extended period, YOU MUST let the lap counters know that you are leaving the loop to rest, also YOU MUST check back in with lap counters to let them know you are starting up again. This is for your safety AND so we can keep an accurate count on your laps.
THE AID STATION: is designed for runners, walkers, volunteers. It’s packed with tons of food and race fuel for our participants. Lots to carb load with and quench your thirst. We will have pizza, subs, grilled cheese sandwiches, soup, mashed potatoes, chips, M&M’s, cookies, bars, fruit, V-gels. Even a chef prepared breakfast!
POST RACE GATHERING AND MEALis meant for all-participants of the races, and friends and family that come cheer you on. Last year someone asked if they could purchase a meal. We cannot legally sell food, if someone wants to make a donation, they most definitely can! We appreciate all donations!
WE WILL HAVE GAMES TO PLAY: Bean bag toss, Yardzee, and volleyball, please let your friends and family know this is available to them. We truly hope that you bring your family along to help us make a day out of it.
