1 Day for the K.I.A. 24 Hour Endurance Run

Location: The Ohio State University Oval
Race Type: 24-Hour Endurance Run
Contrary to most philanthropic runs, we are not trying to fund raise by collecting a large amount of registration fees. Rather, our primary method is by collecting sponsorships for our small group of runners listed under the "Sponsored Runners" section of the website.
The reasons why 24 Hour Endurance Runs are so grueling are self explanatory. The runners have exactly one day to cover as many miles as they can. They are allowed to sleep, eat, leave and come back, and even flat out stop running whenever they want to - whatever they want to to get the furthest mileage possible. Due to the rules and structure of this type of run, it simply tests one thing: How far can you push yourself?
For our sponsored runners, the answer to this question will be highly motivated by the fact that their struggle will make a direct benefit to the families of our fallen servicemen. When the going gets tough, the road ahead looks bleak, and the Rocky theme music has to kick on - they will know that every single step they take provides a deserving child a bit more for their education and their future.
*As we are already putting on this run, we did decide to open no more than 50 slots for others to participate. You can sign up to run in the endurance run just like any other run! Click "Run In It" under the Donate Tab, or just go straight to it here.
