Lhotse Endurance Athletes Network (L.E.A.N.) presents the first annual
March 18-19, 2017
8:00 am CST
The event is a 24-hour track race with 2 and 4 person relay options available. Additional individual options include 100-mile, 50-mile, 12-hour, and 6-hour events. Time limits for the distance races are 24-hours for the 100-mile race and 16-hours for the 50-mile race. We recommend dual registration for the 24-hour and 100 mile race if you are concerned about the 24-hour cutoff for the 100 mile race. Participation will be limited to 100 competitors, and registrations will be filled in the order they are received.
The race is one of the last qualifying events for the 2017 IAU 24-Hour World Championship. The race is intentionally held on a certified track to provide participants with a flat, cushioned surface to achieve their best performance. All efforts will be made to respect the endeavors of competitive athletes while promoting safe and fun environment for all participants.
Laps will be recorded by electronic chip timing and will be submitted for USATF and IAU record purposes.
You may leave the track at any point in time during the race, but you must return to the same place before continuing. You may not leave and return directly by the timing equipment, to avoid double counting a lap. Your number of laps, distance, and race will be shown on an electronic display near the start.
Awards will be given in Male and Female categories for the 24-Hour, 100-mile, 50-mile, 12-hour, and 6-hour overall individual winners and 24-hour overall relay winners. Belt buckles will be provided to 100-mile and 50-mile finishers.
All runners will receive an event specific race shirt, and all finishers will receive a finisher medal.
Average temperatures for March in the Owasso area are 51, with an average high of 62 during the day and an average low of 40 at night. The record high in March is 99, and the record low is -3.
Important – Weather in Oklahoma in March can be sporadic. Be prepared with clothing to handle a wet and cold event. In case of rain, we will have tents and indoor rest areas available for crews and spectators to keep dry during the race.
We will have tables and chairs for runners to share. There is ample space around the track available to set up your own tables and chairs, blankets, or tents.
We will have a fully stocked aid station throughout the event with water, electrolyte drinks, and food. Volunteers can prepare food upon request and assist runners in every reasonable way.
The race route is a 400-meter all-weather track located at Owasso High School in Owasso, Oklahoma. The direction of travel will change every four hours, in accordance with standard practices. Portable restrooms will be available on the course, and showers will be available nearby.
