You will have an unforgettable 24 hours to run or walk as many loops as you like around scenic Salt Creek Recreation Area. Participants – solo or as a relay team – circle the park in a 1.3-mile loop on a combination of paved and unpaved surfaces, while enjoying expansive views of the Strait of Juan de Fuca, towering evergreens and vivid green moss and ferns, and a bit of World War II history.
While the clock will be running for 24 hours, this event is designed to allow athletes to challenge themselves by their own design – they can lap the course when they want, as many times as they like. Run or walk the whole 24 hours? That’s fine. Any other number of hours is fine too, in any configuration. You can go on and off the course as you please. Have a certain mileage goal? Just do that! You may stop at any time if you decide you have had enough fun. Training for another race? Awesome!
Choose your own challenge, with the ultimate goal to have FUN! Round-the-clock activities like Mashed Potato Hour and Bacon Hour (trust us, you will be craving these when the time comes!), door prizes, and poker run hour add to the festivities. Warm up and refuel in the park’s indoor picnic pavilion, complete with a toasty brick fireplace. Big trees and even bigger views keep you company as you lap the park. Make sure to stay for breakfast after the race is over.
Also, this is a family-friendly event – the park has fun for everyone. Bring them along!
