                    9060 Indiantown Road Jupiter, FL 33478

Event Start Times: ( the park is open Sunrise to Sunset and that day it's 7 am to 7 pm. 12 hours of daylight = 1 hour to set up, 1 hour to break down & 10 hours to run )

                             10K - at 9:00 am till you finish ( 2 Loops )


Finish Time: 2:30 pm & 6:00 pm March 19th 2022 ( or when you decide to stop! )

Course: This year the course will be a loop around Riverbend Park ( the long loop will be between 3.5 - 4 miles ) .  You'll pass the Start/Finish Line / Aid Station and your gear every loop.   

Aid Station:   A fully stocked aid station will be at the Start/Finish line, stocked with better then average ultra food!  

Relay Teams: 10 hour event, teams can be 2 to 4 runners
                         6 hour event, teams can be 2 or 3 runners
                         Half marathon event are teams of 2 runners
                         ( all runners choose the order in which they run, everyone must do at least one loop, but the number of loops doesn't have to be the same for everyone, also a runner can pace with the designated runner, but only the runner with the bib that has the timing tag, gets credit for the loop.  You'll get a 2nd pacer bib with no timing tag, to be worn while on the course, at check-in! ) The pricing for teams is a per person price, not a per team price.

Charity Benefactor: Riverbend Park / Battlefield Park 

Registration: RunSignUp.com  The race has a NO Refund Policy in Place, Deferrals are only to the next years event

Packet Pickup: We do packet pick up race morning at the park, you'll get you bib with the timing tag attached from our timer, Mike Melton at his timing tent! ( Look for the arch )

Several Volunteers are still Needed!  

Relay Info:  Teams can be up to 4 people for the 10 hour and up to 3 people for the 6 hour and 2 people for the half.  Each team will be given ONE Bib with a timing chip attached, which can be worn on a race belt for easy transfer between team members ( race belts will be supplied ).  Two or more team members can run together, however you'll only get credit for one loop. This way a team of 3 can compete equally with a team of 4 runners. The team in each event with the most miles wins!  Each long loop will be 3.5 to 4 miles.

Loop Size: For this event we use 2 different size course loops the "Long" loop and a "Short" loop.  Since we have a time limit there is no way the timer could measure partial laps on a 3.5 to 4 mile course and get results posted within our time limit. We will run the Long loop till hour 5 in the 6 hour event and hour 9 in the 10 hour event, then if you're not able to complete another full loop you can switch to the Short loop ( .85 miles ) to get extra mileage in the final hour. Only completed full loops count, if the clock runs out and you're 6 inches from crossing the timing mat, that loop doesn't count!
