The race consists of multiple laps of a USATF-certified 1.00 mile path in Decatur, Alabama’s Delano Park. Aid will be available on each lap. The tree-lined course is flat with total elevation change of less than 15 feet per lap and is completely unpaved. The average high temperature is 60F and average low is 40F. Sometimes it rains all day, it has snowed, and it can get kinda warm, be prepared for anything.
If we don’t fill up the individual 12 Hour and 50 mile divisions pre-race, we will be taking late registrations at packet pickup on Friday night (5:30-7pm at Westminster Presbyterian Church, 801 Jackson St SE)> for individual 12 Hour and 50 mile runners. You will not be guaranteed a shirt or personalized plaque but you can still join in the fun and be an official runner.
Registered runners names and relay team names go to the awards maker on Thursday 2/27. Register by 6am Thursday morning to guarantee you get a plaque with your name or team name on it.
In the 12 Hour Run, awards based on highest mileage will be awarded for the top 3 places overall, masters winner, and grandmasters winner for both genders. Relay awards based on mileage will be given to the top team. Final rankings will be determined by the time the final lap is finished. (No partial laps. Laps finished after 6:00 pm will not count)
In the 50 mile event, awards based on time will be given to the first male and female individuals. Please plan to stay for the awards dinner.
Each participant will receive a personalized plaque with the total mileage completed and your name, a race T-Shirt, and other race goodies. We will make every attempt to capture each and every mile split for every participant in the event.
Relay team can be 2, 3 or 4 persons. The Team Captain needs to register first, pay for themselves and give the team a name. Other team members can then register and pay for themselves to join the team.
