The Lone Ranger Ultra-Marathon
2013 Stroehmann Back on My Feet 20in24 Challenge!
THE LONE RANGER
The Lone Ranger, a true test for any long-distance runner who has tackled a marathon and is looking for something more, has become one of the most popular ultras in the country. Challenge your will by running as many 8.4-mile laps around Philadelphia’s Schuylkill River Running Loop in 24 hours.
Serge Arbona holds the male course record with 154 miles and Sabrina Moran holds if for females with 137 miles. See the course here.
The Lone Ranger will be capped at 310 runners and starts at 9 a.m. on Saturday, September 21, 2013 in front of The Philadelphia Museum of Art and ends at 9 a.m. on Sunday, September 22. Lone Rangers will receive awards for completing at least 50, 75 or 100 miles. Lone Rangers can checkout at any point during the 24 hours to rest, eat, sleep, chill, or get a massage. You must be 18 years old to be a Lone Ranger.

Packet Pick-up & Check-in
You are strongly encouraged to pick up your race packet on Friday night, September 20 at The Philadelphia Museum of Art from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. If you cannot pick your packet up on Friday, an extremely limited packet pick-up will be available Saturday morning at Philadelphia Museum of Art from 6 a.m. to 7:15 a.m. Packet pick-up will close promptly at 7:15 a.m. Any runner who has not been checked in by 7:15 a.m. may not compete!
All Lone Rangers must get their vitals taken when they check in (weight, temperature and blood pressure) – NO EXCEPTIONS. PLEASE DO NOT RUN or BIKE TO PICK UP YOUR PACKET AS YOUR VITALS NEED TO BE PROPERLY RECORDED, or they will have to be taken again on Saturday morning. Your vitals will be your reference point for our medical staff.
Lone Ranger Start Time
9 a.m. - Saturday, September 21.
There will be a meeting for Lone Rangers before the race begins to highlight important race and safety information and any last minute changes. This meeting will take place at approximately 8:15 on Saturday morning at The Philadelphia Museum of Art.
Setting up Your Tent
IMPORTANT: There is plenty of outside space for you to set up tents, which is what the majority of participants do and we encourage you to do the same. Many participants choose to bring their own tent to have outside to be a part of the great 20in24 atmosphere. Please do not set up your tent before 6 a.m., September 21. See the site map.
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 station. In addition, there will be ice and wet towels on the course.
If you decide to take a break during the Lone Ranger, you must check out at the official “Lone Ranger Check-In and Out Table,” located near the finish line and timing tent. See race course map here.
THE FINAL LAPS
In the last two hours of the race, runners will have the option to attempt a partial lap instead of a full lap to get in as many miles as possible. At 10 a.m. on Sunday morning, an air horn will blow at all the refreshment stations signaling the end of the race and a sweep vehicle will come by to pick up all runners still 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!
Pacers are only allowed for Lone Rangers after the fourth lap and they must be on foot – not bike. They must check in at the information tent at the Art Museum and get an official pacer bib. Anyone caught using an unofficial pacer will be disqualified! If you would like to signup as a pacer for a Lone Ranger, click here!
You may bring your personal food and hydration needs to be placed on the course. If you want to have a bag available on the course, you need to drop your bag off at the information tent before 8:00 a.m. – you will see signs for this the morning of the race. Bags will be brought back at the end of the race or whenever you are finished running. Back on My Feet does not take any responsibility for lost or stolen bags.
If you would like to check your bag to be available at the Art Museum at anytime, you need to drop you bag off at the information tent before 8:00 a.m. - you will see signs for this the morning of the race. You may pick your bag up at anytime during the race. Back on My Feet does not take any responsibility for lost or stolen bags.
