How the race works:

Run, walk, or crawl as many laps as you can in the allotted time.  If you arrive back at the start/finish before the clock has expired (11:59:59 for 12 hour runners), then you have the choice of going out for another, "Bonus", lap.  The number of laps completed is the initial deciding factor for placing.  Once the clock expires time becomes relevant for all runners with the same number of laps and is the secondary deciding factor for placing.

Pacers are allowed for the 6 and 12 hour solo runners.  They can join you half way through your race (3 hours and 6 hours respectively).  Pacers MUST check in at the start/finish and sign a waiver.  Pacers are not allowed to mule.

Awards/After party:  The goal is to have everyone finishing around the same time.  This way everyone will have a chance to eat and talk together.  We will provide all participants with a meal.  All runners will receive a custom medal.  Top finishers will also receive special awards.
