A Stroll In Central Park 12-Hour Endurance Run
There’s nothing better than a timed ultra for showing
runners what they can accomplish. For its fourth year A Stroll in Central Park
12-Hour Endurance Run will provide runners a chance to test their medal against
the clock. As one runner said, "miles in this race are like potato chips -- I wanted to do just one more!"
The course is on FLAT asphalt, 1.03 miles per loop. The
loop is inside a park where there are several restrooms available. Central Park
is open, so expect inquisitive looks and comment from passers-by.
There are some lights along the path after dark, but we
recommend bringing a head lamp to wear once the sun goes down.
Aid and Lap Counting
There will be one aid station with drinks, cold and hot food,
cookies, candy and anything else we can think of. Pizza is served at around
noon and soup and grilled cheese sandwiches later in the day.
Lap Counting is done by volunteers who are trained to count
laps carefully. We don’t have snazzy timing gizmos, but smart and dedicated
volunteers can make mistakes. If we miss a lap, we’ll take your word for it.
We’ll do the math and fractions of a mile will be rounded to the closest
There is plenty of parking close to the course and there
is also ample room for chairs and other self-support items.
One mile FLAT asphalt loop inside Central Park in Cumming, GA. There is a covered pavilion which will be used as an aide station and runner supply area. There is one permanent restroom facility in the park.
