Event Info

How far can you run in 24 hours?

24 Hours of RichmondYou can complete your miles anywhere you want, including on a treadmill! This is about how many miles you (or a team of up to 4) cover and not the speed in which you cover them!

Probably more than you think.

Sound intimidating? It’s not! You can run just 1.1 miles every hour to complete 26.4 miles in one day. Easy! Now let’s say you want to sleep for 8 hours and only be active for 16 hours.  You still could run/walk 1.65 miles per hour for 16 hours and you would still reach 26.4 miles.

If you’re interested in conquering even more miles, check out this inspiring story of a woman who ran 60 miles in 24 hours.

Plan your 24 hours so you’ll have time to eat, hydrate, shower, change clothes—how you choose to tackle this event is up to you! You can rack up big miles and then brag about it with your great participant swag!
