Note on loop timing using Lap 1 as an example –
Each loop is a mass start with every runner left going off together.
If you finish loop 1 in 12 minutes, you have an 8 minute break. If you Finish loop 1 in 18 minutes, you have a 2 minute break. If you finish loop 1 in 19:59 you will just keep on moving into loop 2. Anyone coming in AFTER 20:00 will be eliminated. The same process is repeated each lap.
|Mile||Time to complete loop in minutes||Total time in minutes|
****If more than one runner is left heading into lap number 26 the event will turn in to a 1 loop race. We will reset the runners – Line up – and say go within 30 seconds of the final loop completing. The final runners left standing at that point will be ranked based on placement in the final loop.****
Placement – The order runners complete a lap before elimination determines the winner.
Runners A and B both complete Lap 22 in time with runner B finishing ahead of runner A. Neither runner completes lap 23 in time. Runner B is the winner of the event based on finishing the previous loop first.
