Time Laps 24 Hour Relay Race

The fourth annual Time Laps 24 Hour Relay Race puts your endurance to the test as you and your team race around the clock. This lap-based relay race challenges teams to earn as many points as possible within a 24-hour time period (points awarded based on difficulty-weighted mileage). The race begins Friday at 7:00pm and concludes Saturday at 7:00pm. Enjoy bonfires, food, craft beer, special awards, and raffle prizes while wrapping up the race with live music at our River Jam concert series during the post-race festival.

In addition to 24Hrs of racing, each pre-registered participant will also receive a t-shirt, unique finisher’s medal, three hot meals during the event, beer from NoDa Brewing Co., s’mores, camping with full shower facilities on-site, and a post-race party featuring live music.
