Lapper’s Delight

24 Hours at Jomeokee Park, NC

Saturday March 8, 2014

The Event

A 24 hour run/race held at beautiful Jomeokee Park  ( at the base of Pilot Mountain in North Carolina.  Individual, 2 person, and up to 6 person Team competitions give all runners an event in which they can compete.  Come join us, rain or shine!


Race management will be provided by Ultimate Race Management with computerized lap by lap results (via chip timing) and hourly updates throughout the day on our race ‘war board’.   Results will be posted on The Ultimate Race Website (  The race will start at 9 am on Saturday March 8, 2014 and end at 10 am the following morning.  Why 10 am?  We lose an hour to daylight savings time that night!

The Course

Your day will be spent on a beautiful 1.5 mile loop course through Jomeokee Park on grass and trail.  The course will be well marked at night, but it will be dark so headlamps and/or flashlights are required of all runners.  The course is currently “under construction” but will be measured with a steel tape for accuracy.  Course maps will be available when the course layout is completed.


Distance completed determines the winner.  We will allow a 1 mile split on the last lap.  There will be no partial mile splits.
