The Rivebank One Day Classic is a race created to give runners, regardless of ability, the opportunity to see just how many miles they can get done in 24 hours. Whether you are chasing national records or just attempting your first "ultra", this is the race for you. This race will be run on a certified 400 meter track and will be both an IAU Bronze Label event and USATF Sanctioned. For our elite athletes, this is a great opportunity to make the 24 Hour National Team. For those that don't think they will be breaking any world's records, this event will give you the opportunity to push yourself to whatever goals you have in mind.
This race is run on the brand new track at Riverbank High School in the Central Valley of California. Located near 3 major airports (San Francisco 95 miles, Oakland 77 miles and San Jose/Sacramento 84 miles), it is an easy location to get to. Also, the weather for that time of the year is very favorable to running, giving everyone the best conditions to reach their goals.
Not totally sure that you are ready to tackle the full 24 hours? Well, we've got you covered. We will also be offering a 12 hour event and a relay for those wanting to drag their friends into the party.
Still need more convincing? The bulk of the proceeds will be going to support the Riverbank High School Cross County Team and the Center for Human Services.
We look forward to seeing you in February!
