Challenge yourself, or your team of 4-10 participants, to 24 hours of running/walking around Olander Park’s scenic 1.1 mile lake. This endurance challenge is like none other in NW Ohio, and the entire course is flat, paved and contained within the park.
Sylvania, Ohio’s Olander Park is the former home of the 24 Hour National Championships. Participants of the Olander 24 Hour Endurance Challenge will start at 10am on Sunday morning and finish at 10am Monday, after a scenic and entertaining 24 hours with friends, family and the holiday weekend community. Scheduled meals, safety lighting and an entertainment stage will help you get through the challenge. Tent camping will be available inside Olander, and a large area in the Tam-O-Shanter parking lot will be setup to accommodate RV’s for your overnight stay — at no additional charge. Spots are available on a first come basis. Register with friends and family and enjoy the Labor Day weekend outside, with all Olander Park has to offer.
A portion of the proceeds will be donated to The Expressive Therapies Treatment Center.
