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