Loopty Loop Ultra
This is a 4, 8 and 12 hour race… This means you can run, walk, go fast, go slow! Do as many of the 6.3 mile loops as you want or can. This is your race…. keep going to the last minute or stop when you want. You do NOT have to run the whole time you signed up for. Take a short break, take a long break. Get the idea? It’s your race, do what you want in your allotted time 🙂
