SETTING UP YOUR TENT
Many participants choose to bring their own tent to have outside to be a part of the great 20in24 atmosphere. There will be lots of space to set up camp. Please do not set up your tent before 6 a.m., Saturday, July 20.
refreshment and water stops
There will be a refreshment station every two miles of the loop that will be stocked with plenty of food, water and bathrooms. In addition, The Art Museum will have more substantial food, such as pizza, sandwiches and soft pretzels, for the longer rests in between laps. Hydrating drinks and energizing snacks will also be at every re-energizing station. In addition, there will be ice and wet towels on the course.
Running at Night
AT ALL TIMES RUNNERS MUST HAVE A HEADLAMP – NO EXCEPTIONS! We also recommend that runners carry cell phones. The course will be well lit and marshaled by bikes and support vehicles that will constantly patrol the course. RUNNERS COMPETING AT NIGHT WITHOUT A HEADLAMP OR WITH HEADPHONES WILL BE DISQAULIFIED!
Relay teams are not allowed to have pacers. Your team will be disqualified from placing if you are caught using a pacer.
