What is your why? Why are you here? Is it the challenge of seeing how far you can go? How fast you can go? Do you find peace in the trails or excitement in not knowing how a race like this will end? Do you crave the challenge of finding the motivation and energy to continue on?

This race is different. We think you knew that when you signed up, but if not, warning... this is not your average 5k with a set distance and end time. Only YOU can determine how far you can go or how hard you push each loop.

One thing that is for certain? We start each 4.167 mile loop every hour, on the hour. Be there, be square... or you’ll be left behind.
