The Cannonball is a last man/woman standing competition. The race will begin at 8am. Each runner has 1hr to complete the 4.3 mile loop. If a runner fails to return within the hour, they are eliminated. Sounds pretty easy huh? Well at 9am the race will continue for the 4.3 mile loop again. If a runner fails to answer the bell and start at 9am that runner is eliminated. The race will continue every hour on the hour until 1 person is left to answer the call. So if you are a faster runner you may finish the 4 miles in 30 minutes…but then you have to wait 30 mins before you can start again. If you are a slower runner and finish the 4 miles in 50 minutes you have 10 mins to rest/refuel before the race starts again.
