Loopy Looper - 12 hour challenge
COVID-19 Update: As of 4/27/20, Loopy Looper has not been postponed or canceled. We are evaluating this as updates occur and remain optimistic. If we ultimately have to, all current runners will be automatically deferred to the future event, or given the option for entry into another future Endless Endurance event.
We are leaving registration open as-is without price increase until 5/11/20. On 5/11/20 we are turning off new credit card charges as the price increase hits, and all registrations 5/11 and beyond will go to a "waitlist" and as we open up new spots runners will be contacted before their card is charged.
Why are we doing this? This feature new feature on UltraSignup allows us to give runners that register some added assurance that they can register without being charged until we are closer to the event and positive it will occur. This also gives us some added control so that we can be prepared for potential event capacity mandates that may be coming out.
Please feel free to contact us at if you have any questions.
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
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.
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: All registrations 5/11/20 and beyond will go to a waitlist. (see note at the top of the page)
$90 until 5/11/20
$100 until 6/15/20
$115 until 7/25/20
Teams (4-Person Relay)
$360 until 5/11/20
$400 until 6/15/20
$460 until 7/25/20
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.
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.
Last Lap Exception: Teams are allowed to run their last lap all together to celebrate surviving the day, but this is the ONLY lap you can do, and it has to be the last lap of the day. This isn't mandatory, just an option for those teams that like to party with their friends
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!
****NEW FOR THIS YEAR****
Ultrarunning can be a messy sport, and the amount of waste created by runners in 12 hours can be a lot. Due to this, we are making the 2020 race a CUPLESS RACE. This means we do not plan to have a ton of plastic cups for you at the aid stations. Please plan to bring a bladder/pack, water bottle, or re-usable to cup to use for the day. We will likely be offering runners a chance to get these through us at some point leading up to the race, but please plan to have one either way.
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.
Male: Michael Gagliardi - 71.25 Miles (2019)
Female: Lara Miller - 67.50 Miles (2019)
