Sounds interesting. We've got the Tick Tock Ultra race in my hometown on August 16th, but I'm not doing it this year. It's 24 hours. I understand many are setting up air conditioned tents to rest in between 2.84 mile laps. Anyone completing at least 10 laps (28.4 miles) gets a medal. The people I know who are running this race are experienced marathoners using the full marathon training plans and adding a couple even longer runs.

Best wishes for a great race!

No, I never have. What sort of surface will you be running on? What sort of terrain? If it were I, I'd google "ultra running training plans" or "12 hour running race plans" to see what I could find. I assume this is a race where you stop after 12 hours rather than a specific distance. Is it run on a short loop?

Have any of you trained for and run a 12 hour race? What plan did you use?
