Hello brave participants! here's the rules: This unique race concept does not require you to the be the fastest, it only requires you to be the toughest. At the top of every hour a 4-mile trail run will begin. Each runner is required to run this loop before the hour is up. Then, at the top of the next hour, you all leave for the same 4-mile loop again. The run will continue as such until only one person remains. That person will have to complete one more 4-mile loop on their own at which point they will be the finisher. All other entrants will be granted a "DNF" as they failed to run as far as the finisher. This means the race may continue overnight and into the next day. Again, the rules are simple: At the top of each hour a bell will sound and all runners shall leave to run a 4-mile loop. Each loop shall be completed before the hour runs out. At the top of the next hour, another bell will sound and each runner shall leave again. This continues until only one runner remains, at which point they shall run one final loop alone and be declared the "finisher." All other entrants will be DNF's.
