48 Hour Race

The 48 Hour Race will start Friday at 9am. There will be 3 buckles available. Runners that surpass 100 miles before 24 hours but do not reach 150 will receive the sub 24 buckle. Runners that take between 24 and 48 hours to hit 100 miles will get a slightly smaller buckle with a 48 on it. Lastly, runners that complete 150 miles or more will receive a larger full color buckle. Due to cost of creating a mold and purchasing only a few buckles, a 200 mile buckle will not be created at this time. By all means, join Lisa DeVona (207.1875) by running 200, we will make you a buckle at that point!
