Time Laps 24 Hr Relay Race

The inaugural Time Laps 24 Hr Relay Race is a lap-based trail relay race in which teams attempt to achieve as many points (miles weighted based on difficulty) as possible within a 24-hour time period. The race will begin at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, May 9 and will end at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 10. The race will be highlighted by bon fires, food, beer from NoDa Brewing Co., special awards, raffle prizes and live music during our River Jam concert series during the post race festival.

To make this event more unique and fun, participants will also have the option to purchase a Time Laps Activity Pass that will grant access to participate in a number of activities throughout Friday night and early Saturday morning including, night Zip Lining, Stand-up Paddleboarding, Rock Climbing and of course Whitewater activities. Along with the fun, excitement and challenge of the race itself, each pre-registered participant will receive a tech performance t-shirt, finisher’s item, three hot meals throughout the event, beer from NoDa Brewing Co., camping with full shower facilities on-site, and a post-race party with live music.

    Do you plan on holding this race again? Do you have a date yet?

    • USNWC July 8, 2014 at 2:03 pm

      Hi Susanna, we do plan to hold this race again, but not sure of a date yet. Stay tuned to our website.

  2. Sarah Drilling May 7, 2014 at 9:16 pm

    How many teams are signed up so far? What time can teams start setting up camp on Friday?

    • USNWC May 8, 2014 at 10:56 am

      Hi Sarah, you will be getting an email with all of this information shortly.

  3. Tom May 3, 2014 at 6:23 pm

    Does an AllSport (season) pass permit one to go night rafting? Or is that activity only for Time Laps Activity Pass holders?

    • USNWC May 5, 2014 at 5:14 pm

      Hi Tom, the Time Laps Activities are only available to those who have registered for Time Laps.

  4. Todd April 14, 2014 at 2:52 pm

    Hi. I understand that only one team member may be on the course at any given time. However, once a team member completes their lap(s) and the next team member takes to the course, can a team member who already completed laps earlier, take to the course again later or are they done for the entire race once they finished their initial lap(s)? Thanks

    • USNWC April 16, 2014 at 9:53 am

      Hi Todd, yes, those who have completed laps earlier in the race may run additional laps after another teammate. Team members are allowed to complete as many laps as they choose in any order the team prefers.

    • USNWC April 14, 2014 at 9:55 am
