CandleLight 12 Hour – Overnight Ultra

Run as many laps/miles as you can in 12 hours. One Lap is about about 1.07 miles long. Race course is mix of cross-country, paved and unpaved surfaces but mostly cross country type of surface with rolling hills. Expect occasional horse-shoe made and tire track divots. Course will not be lit. Even it is not a requirement bring your own headlamp or flashlight for running in the dark.

While this is a 12 hour race, there is no minimum required amount of time to be on the course, nor will you DNF (did not finish) if you do not run the entire 12 hours. One complete lap of the course qualifies you for an official finish. You can run as long or as short as you want, depending on your personal goals.

Walking and stopping to rest is allowed.

The course will feature one fully stocked aid station with great ultra fare throughout the run. Also it will be easy to self-support – bring your own cooler, tent, chair, and/or other supplies and set up your personal aid station that you can visit every lap.
