The 9 Hours for 9 Lives Ultra is being held to raise funds for The Colony Caregivers. The Colony Caregivers provides reduced cost vet care to feral, stray, and abandoned cats in Ontario County, NY. The organization is completely run by volunteers and relies solely on funds raised by our community. You can learn more about them at www.thecolonycaregivers.org.
The 1.6 mile loop course will take you through the rolling apple orchards at The Victor Apple Farm. You get to choose whether to complete one loop or all the loops you can muster from 8:00am to 5:00pm. There will be random giveaways throughout based on how many hours you complete as well as prizes for top finishers! Medals are awarded to all participants as a way for the kitty-cats to say thank you! Meow!
UPDATE! This event will be professionally timed!
1. Are there potties available? Yes, there will be portapotties available right along the course.
2. Can you finish your last loop and count it if it’s past 5:00? No, completed laps by 5:00 count.
3. Do I have to run? No! You can walk, wheel, crawl, skip, sashay or whatever!
4. Do I have to stay out there for 9 hours? No! You can choose to complete one loop or as many loops you want to anywhere within the 9 hour timeframe!
