Loopy Looper - 12 hour challenge

 When:  Saturday, August 1, 2020  (Registration opens 2/1/20)

 

Location: Cooper River Park - Jack Curtis Stadium: 1301 North Park Drive, Pennsauken, NJ 08109

Race Start: 7:00am

 

Race End: 7:00pm

 

Swag:

 

All finishers will receive a finisher's award and a t-shirt that includes the race logo below. We will have a little something special for those that complete a distance of 10, 15, or 20 loops. There will be awards for the top Male/Female of the event.

Course:

The race will be held on a 3.75 mile loop on a paved path around Cooper River Park. The course is mostly flat and you will run as many loops of it as you can/want in 12 hours. This is one of the fastest looped courses in the country and a great chance to put in some serious mileage.

Registration Fees:

Individuals

$90 through 4/1/20

$100 through 6/15/20

$115 through 7/25/20

Teams (4-Person Relay)

$360 through 4/1/20

$400 through 6/15/20

$460 through 7/25/20

Time Limit:

 

Runners will have the hours of 7:00 AM - 7:00 PM to run as many laps of the 3.75 mile loop around Cooper River Park as you want. No new laps will be allowed to start after 6:30 PM, and partial laps will not be counted. Runners must complete their final loop by 6:59 PM for it to be counted. No laps finished after 6:59 PM will be counted. This requires some strategizing by runners to optimize your day.

 

Relay Option:

 

Teams of 4 will run the loop in a relay-style, with a maximum of 1 runner on the course at any time. Teams can still take breaks like individual runners and the finisher rules below also apply to relay teams. 

 

Pit Area and Aid Station:

 

This will be a very well supported event. We plan to have one fully stocked aid station with all the standard ultra running goodies at the Start/Finish line and one water station out on course. The aid station will have things like PB&J, chips, candy, soda, water, sports drinks, pizza, and much more.

 

At the Start/Finish area at the stadium, there will be a drop/pit area for you to stash your stuff for the day. We ask that you do not bring any tents larger than 10x10!

 

Weather:

 

This is August and it will likely be hot. Having a personal water supply on the course is mandatory, and plan to drink and eat more than you usually do. 

 

Finisher Rules: 

 

To be counted as a finisher you need to be on location at 6:00 PM and have completed at least one full loop of the course. No medals will be handed out before 6:00 PM! We don’t care if you’re out there grinding out as many miles as possible in the 12 hours or if you ran a loop and spent the rest of the day helping out your fellow runners. You’re still a finisher and you’ll still get your medal. We just ask that if you are not running all day to do something productive like actively helping other runners.

Course Records:

Male: Michael Gagliardi - 71.25 Miles (2019)

Female: Lara Miller - 67.50 Miles (2019)
