The race options are 30-hour, 24-hour, 12-hour, and 6-hour. There is also a Kids Race – 30 minutes or 1 hour. How far can you run in the allotted time? Since we are not all on the same course, individual stages don't make sense in this twilight zone of a time we are living in, and we have to compete based on the same duration.
Pick your duration and give it your all! The race is open to solos or teams with awards for the top time in each.
CUTOFF TIME: 30/24/12/6 hours depending on the duration you choose. Start running by 0800 hours on July 4 and you have get as far as you can in your allotted time. If you go over your allotted time, we have the discretion to rank you in the next time category above. OUCH! that will hurt if you are only over by a few minutes so watch your time. Yes you can start earlier than 0800 but we only count the distance in the duration that you picked. Watch your time!
RANKINGS: In order to compete, you need to share your Strava or send us a suitable GPS file (GPX preferably). So charge up that watch and carry a spare battery, or grab a handheld GPS.
COURSE/TERRAIN: We hope you will get outside on a favourite trail while respecting any social distancing measures and area closures. Or you can run on a dreadmill... but c'mon, we're trail runners.
TEAMS: Teams can be up to 7 people. All of your segments of time must total at least the duration for your chosen category. So, for instance, if you choose the 24-hour category, the total time amongst all teammates must be at least 24 hours. Let's say you want to do the 30-hour category but your total time is less than 30-hours; in that case you will drop down to the category that encompasses your total time.
KIDS RACE: Get your kids out and running too. To be in the PURE KIDS race, they must be 15 or younger on race day. Entry is only $10 and includes medal and sticker. Pick the 30 or 60-minute event and see how far you can run. Yes, parents are encouraged to run with their kids.
AWARDS: Female/Male + Team categories. Kids categories are 9 & under, 10-12, and 13-15 + Female/Male. Don't forget that we have lots of fun prizes for people who share their runs on social media.
SWAG: Your swag depends on what you entered...
