Covid-19 Update - July 26th:  The Wisconsin DNR is currently in Phase 2 of their re-opening plan, which allows group gatherings (classes, camping, limited special events, etc.) with certain restrictions.  At this time, we still plan to have the race on Sept. 5-6th, provided things don't move backwards to more shut downs.  Plans would most likely include modifications (race caps, limits on crew/spectators, etc.), which are all still being worked out.  Registration is open, and if the race were to be canceled, all entries would be rolled over to 2021.  Updates as we have them will be posted here.

Runners will be gathering at Lapham Peak State Park to see how many miles they can cover in the time frame selected; the 12 and 6 hour divisions have day or night options.  There is also the "Distance" division, for runners who want to cover a certain distance (such as a marathon, 50K, 50 miles, etc.), but feel they may need more time than the 6 or 12 hours.  Join us, and let's see how FAR you can go!

Date:  September 5th, 2020

Place:  Lapham Peak State Park – Evergreen Lot
            W329 N846 County C
            Delafield, WI  53018

Directions:  Lapham Peak State Park is located west of Milwaukee along Hwy 94 (exit 285, County C).  Head south on Hwy C about 1 mile; the park entrance is on the left.  The Evergreen lot is the first right after the park entrance station.

Parking Stickers:  All vehicles are required to have a state park parking sticker.  If you do not have one, we will provide a daily sticker for your vehicle at no charge (additional stickers for crew and spectator vehicles will need to be purchased if required).

Start Times:
8:00 am  24 Hour
9:00 am  12/6 Hour (day division)
8:00 pm  12/6 Hour (night division)
Distance division runners may start at 9:00 am, and at every hour thereafter until 8:00 pm.

Course: The loop is on a wide, gentle trail (mixture of gravel, grass, and dirt) 1 mile long; elevation gain is 72‘ per loop.  It will be lighted at night, but runners may use a flashlight or headlamp if they choose.  There will be chip timing to record laps, and we will switch direction every 3 hours.

Aid Station: There will be a manned aid station at the start/finish of the loop, with a wide variety of foods and fluids.  Hammer Nutrition is a sponsor, so we will have HEED, HammerGel, and Endurolytes products.  NOTE: We have moved towards being a cupless event; pre-filled paper cups will not be set out at the aid station.  Runners will be responsible for carrying their own container (bottle, vest, reusable cup, etc.) to refill along the way.  If you do not already have a reusable cup, we will provide you with one at check-in, courtesy of Hammer Nutrition!  Runners can also bring their personnel supplies, items you know work well for you, and set up right along the course with a table/chair, tent, canopy, etc.

Pacing: Pacing is not allowed in any of the events, but family and friends are welcome to crew for you and accompany you while you are taking walking breaks.
  
Awards:  Plaque for all runners, with name and mileage total.  The top male and female runners in the 24, 12 (day), and 6 (day) hour events will receive a champion plaque.
