Bristow 24/12 Run
June 18$140 – $180
This 12-hour and 24-hour loop race lets runners challenge themselves to see just how many miles they can run in a set time limit. The course is a 1.05-mile, mostly trail, loop through Elijah Bristow State Park, just 30 minutes east of Eugene, Oregon. An amazing aid station is available every loop and/or runners can set up their own space to feed and fuel themselves or for a crew to support them along the way.
The race is at the Elijah Bristow State Park and occurs on a 1.05-mile loop. The course is almost all dirt trail, with a short section on pavement as you approach and leave the aid station/timing/parking area. There is about 16 feet of gain in a loop, so this is pancake-flat. Here is the course map
There are equestrian trails at the state park, so you can expect to encounter horses while you’re racing. We’ll explain the best way to approach them during the race announcements.
There is one aid station that you will pass by every single lap. This make it very easy to run this race without a crew. The aid station will have water, GU electrolyte drink, GU gels, peanut butter & jelly sandwiches, Gummi bears, chips, Fig Newtons, bananas, and oranges are provided. Plus, keeping a Bristow 24/12 tradition alive, you can order hot food (burgers, quesadillas, pancakes, bacon, etc.) at the beginning of a lap and we’ll have it ready for you when you finish that lap.
Crew and spectators ARE allowed for both the 12- and 24-Hour races!
Crew is definitely not necessary to race this, as we’ll provide all the support you need. But, friends and family cheering you on is pretty awesome, so you are welcome to use a crew if you like.
Crew can set up a spot in the parking area in front or behind a vehicle or you can create your own little aid station on the grass right at the start/finish area. We need to be sure there is room for all the racers, so be considerate when staking out your personal aid station. Your crew cannot access you while you are on the dirt trail portion of the course.
Pacing is allowed after 8:00 p.m., 12 hours into the race. Be careful to let other runners pass.
