The Pemberton 24 is an exciting and crazy opportunity to run as many 5ks in a day as you and and/or your team would like to race. We will be starting a 5k every hour on the hour for 24 hours. The course will be a 5k trail run in The Pemberton Park trail system and put on by Algonquin Ultras Inc. and Wicomico County. We will have a very well-stocked aid station at the start/finish of the 5ks. There will be places for runners to set up their ‘camp’ to rest or sleep (if possible) in between runs and to socialize with other runners and volunteers. The aid station will have lots of cold water, snacks, Gels, chips, sodas, and everything a runner could want or need including many surprises.
The PBT24 will not be timed in the traditional manner. There will be a timing clock, but individual times will not be recorded. Instead... Runners will earn points for each 5k they run. A runner’s placement is important (for the top 5 men and women), but not their actual times. Runners must complete the 5k course in under an hour (so, before the next 5k starts) or else they will not earn a point for their run. Runners must also start each 5k on the hour with the other runners participating (no late starts).
