Lastest Not Fastest
October 9$160 – $180
How many times do you think you could run a 4.5 mile trail loop through the high desert near Bend, Oregon? The new Lastest Not Fastest™ race is a last-person-standing concept, with runners heading out, on the hour, every hour, to complete a 4.5-mile loop on the trails at Tumalo Canal Historic Area. If you complete the loop in 30-minutes, you get 29 minutes to rest and get ready for the next loop. Say it takes you 50 minutes, you are still in the race, but you have just 9 minutes to recover. But if it takes you 60 minutes or longer, you are done. Racers will keep at it, running loops every hour, until there is just one runner left.
All participants will have their distance result posted to Ultrasignup; you won’t have a DNF unless you don’t complete the very first lap.
