In 2020 due to COVID, we held this event virtually, but 2021 is here and it's going to be a LIVE edition of the Beat the Clock Challenge at the Litchfield Distillery in Litchfield, CT!
Can you run 2.08 miles in 30 minutes? Seems pretty easy right? Then this challenge is for you! The Beat the Clock Challenge is a way to get your feet wet in a shortened format and see how you stack up against the competition. If you can finish in 30 minutes, you have the option and opportunity to start the next 30 minutes. We will keep going until there is ONE runner left!
There is a catch though with this event though in that every lap/30 minutes we will be reducing the amount of time by 1 minute that you have to complete the loop. Every loop will still START every 30 minutes, so even if the time to finish the loop is for example 25 minutes and you barely finish, you will have 5 minutes to rest before the start of the next one. This will certainly push you to the edge of your endurance and speed as you will have to run faster as the event goes on. It's your choice on how long you can continue to "beat the clock"!
There will also be some prize money to the winners of each division! (see details below).
