Run as many laps/miles as you can in 12 hours. One Lap is about one mile. This will be a cross country type of course, mostly flat, no ankle twisters, no roots, no rocks. The course will not be lit. It is recommended that you bring your own headlamp or flashlight for running in the dark.
While this is a 12 hour race, there is no minimum required amount of time to be on the course, nor will you DNF (did not finish) if you do not run the entire 12 hours. One complete lap of the course qualifies you for an official finish. You can run as long or as short as you want, depending on your personal goals.
Walking, stopping to rest, and even napping is allowed.
The course will feature one fully stocked aid station with great ultra fare throughout the run. Also it will be easy to self-support – bring your own cooler, tent, chair, and/or other supplies and set up your personal aid station that you can visit every lap.
EquiCenter’s mission is to foster the personal growth and individual achievement of people with disabilities, at-risk youth, Veterans, and their families using a wide range of therapeutic equestrian and related programs.
