How It Works

Are you endurance race curious? Or trail running curious? Both? This is a welcoming event for you! Run a 5K on the hour every hour between 7:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Individual and team options available!

Individuals: Can you complete all five loops? Run all 25K for the most bragging rights of the day. Awards are based on cumulative time.

Teams of Two: Alternate 5Ks with one person doing three 5Ks and the other teammate doing two. Running only one 5K is not allowed.

The course is a 5k loop with a shared start/finish line. Participants must be ready at the start line at the top of every start hour.


All loops are chip timed. Results will be based on total cumulative time.

Participants must be able to finish each 5K loop in :55 minutes. Anyone who does not meet the time cutoff each hour will not be permitted to continue and only their finished laps will be listed in the results.

The first 5K will begin at 7:30 a.m. The last 5K will begin at 11:30 a.m.
