If your start time is 10 a.m. please come to Lloyd Hall between 7:00 a.m. to 8:15 a.m. If your start time is 6 p.m. please come to Lloyd Hall between 4:00 p.m. to 5:15 p.m. One member of your team can pick up the packets for the whole team.

LLOYD HALL & SETTING UP YOUR TENT
Runners will enjoy all the amenities of Lloyd Hall. This facility is air-conditioned and will be open the entire 24 hours to all participants. Inside, you will be able to relax, eat, get massages and even take a shower.
IMPORTANT: Only Platinum teams and Lone Rangers will be able to set up sleeping areas inside Lloyd Hall – you will be able to go in at any time to cool off.
While Lloyd Hall will be open and available for all Lone Rangers and Platinum Relayers to rest in, 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 and you can see the site layout here. 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, Lloyd Hall 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.
Using an Alternate
All teams must have 5 registered individuals to have an official team and participate. If one of your teammates gets injured during the race, you have two choices. One of the other four team members can pick up the lap, or you can use an alternate. There is no penalty if another member picks up the remaining laps. If your team decides to use your alternate, there will be a time penalty of:
- 5 minutes added to the Bronze teams
- 8 minutes added to the Silver teams
- 10 minutes added to the Gold teams
- 12 minutes added to the Platinum teams
If you are going to use an alternate, he or she must check-in at the timing tent before starting to run. Any team caught using an alternate without notifying timing will be disqualified immediately!
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.
