The Sole Challenge timed races has a race for everyone: Marathon distance (26.2 miles) which will be 17 loops around the beautiful Norlo Park. (We are lobbying to BAA for this to become a Boston Marathon qualifier). There are also 6 hour, 12 hour, and 24 hour race options. 2017 will also add a 48 hour race for those runners that want to experience a higher level of pain and accomplishment. The 48 hour race will begin May 26th 2017, at 8am. The remaining races will begin May 27th at 8am. 

Electronic Chip timing will be handled by Jeff Miville from PArunners. Runners who set State, National, or World records or are attempting to qualify for the USA national 24 hour team will have their laps, distances, and times accurately tracked. 

Located in Fayetteville, PA. Norlo Park is a USATF certified 1.547 mile loop on an 8ft wide asphalt path winding around the park. This beautiful park offers family and spectators a plethora of attractions that include: a kids train ride, tennis courts, horseshoe pits, basketball courts, two dog parks, baseball fields, soccer fields and more. Norlo is in close proximity to Gettysburg Civil War battlefields, Baltimore, MD., Washington, D.C., Caledonia State park nestled in Michaux State forest, and many other attractions. There are multiple parking lots for RV’s & campers for the weekend at no additional charge. Tent camping for the events will be permitted in a common area. Specific areas will be designated at time of arrival to site. 
A fully stocked aid station will offer runner’s fare including vegan and vegetarian foods.
