Short review

( A Fixed Time Event is where you have 6 or 10 hours to run as much as you can or want to. Technically, your a finisher after completing one loop! ) The half marathon is 4 loops, the 10 K is 2 loops!
  ​Timing will be by Mike Melton of MCM Timing Date: Saturday  3-19-2022
Location: Riverbend & Loxahatchee River Battlefield Parks, 
                    9060 Indiantown Road Jupiter, FL 33478
Event Start Times: ( the park is open Sunrise to Sunset and that day it's 7 am to 7 pm. 12 hours of daylight = 1 hour to set up, 1 hour to break down & 10 hours to run )
                    Individual & Relay Events
                             10 Hour – at 8:00 am to 6:00 pm
                             6 Hour –  at 8:00 am to 2:00 pm
                             Half Marathon Distance - at 9:00 am till you finish ( 4 Loops ) 
                             10K - at 9:00 am till you finish ( 2 Loops )

Finish Time: 2:30 pm & 6:00 pm March 19th 2022 ( or when you decide to stop! )
Course: This year the course will be a loop around Riverbend Park ( the long loop will be between 3.5 - 4 miles ) .  You'll pass the Start/Finish Line / Aid Station and your gear every loop.    Aid Station:   A fully stocked aid station will be at the Start/Finish line, stocked with better then average ultra food!   Relay Teams: 10 hour event, teams can be 2 to 4 runners
                         6 hour event, teams can be 2 or 3 runners
                         Half marathon event are teams of 2 runners
                         ( all runners choose the order in which they run, everyone must do at least one loop, but the number of loops doesn't have to be the same for everyone, also a runner can pace with the designated runner, but only the runner with the bib that has the timing tag, gets credit for the loop.  You'll get a 2nd pacer bib with no timing tag, to be worn while on the course, at check-in! ) 
Charity Benefactor: Riverbend Park / Battlefield Park  Registration: RunSignUp.com Packet Pickup: We do packet pick up race morning at the park, you'll get you bib with the timing tag attached from our timer, Mike Melton at his timing tent! ( Look for the arch ) Several Volunteers are still Needed!   Relay Info:  Teams can be up to 4 people for the 10 hour and up to 3 people for the 6 hour and 2 people for the half.  Each team will be given ONE Bib with a timing chip attached, which can be worn on a race belt for easy transfer between team members ( race belts will be supplied ).  Two or more team members can run together, however you'll only get credit for one loop. This way a team of 3 can compete equally with a team of 4 runners. The team in each event with the most miles wins!  Each long loop will be 3.5 to 4 miles. Loop Size: For this event we use 2 different size course loops the "Long" loop and a "Short" loop.  Since we have a time limit there is no way the timer could measure partial laps on a 3.5 to 4 mile course and get results posted within our time limit. We will run the Long loop till hour 5 in the 6 hour event and hour 9 in the 10 hour event, then if you're not able to complete another full loop you can switch to the Short loop ( .85 miles ) to get extra mileage in the final hour. Only completed full loops count, if the clock runs out and you're 10 feet from the finish line, that loop doesn't count!
