This 12-hour and 24-hour loop race lets runners challenge themselves to see just how many miles they can run in a set time limit. The course is a 1.05-mile, mostly trail, loop through Elijah Bristow State Park, just 30 minutes east of Eugene, Oregon. An amazing aid station is available every loop and/or runners can set up their own space to feed and fuel themselves or for a crew to support them along the way.
You can order an optional race shirt for extra during the registration process through May 16.
Please note that there are no transfers to other runners and no refunds. If you need to cancel your registration and it’s more than 30 days prior to the race, you will receive a 50% credit toward a future Go Beyond Racing race. If your cancellation is 30 days or less from race day, there is no credit. By registering, you agree to this Cancellation Policy.

The race is at the Elijah Bristow State Park and occurs on a 1.05-mile loop. The course is almost all dirt trail, with a short section on pavement as you approach and leave the aid station/timing/parking area. There is about 16 feet of gain in a loop, so this is pancake-flat. Here is the course map
There are equestrian trails at the state park, so you can expect to encounter horses while you’re racing. We’ll explain the best way to approach them during the race announcements.
There is one aid station that you will pass by every single lap. This make it very easy to run this race without a crew. The aid station will have water, GU electrolyte drink, GU gels, peanut butter & jelly sandwiches, Gummi bears, chips, Fig Newtons, bananas, and oranges are provided. Plus, keeping a Bristow 24/12 tradition alive, you can order hot food (burgers, quesadillas, pancakes, bacon, etc.) at the beginning of a lap and we’ll have it ready for you when you finish that lap.
Crew and spectators ARE allowed for both the 12- and 24-Hour races!
Crew is definitely not necessary to race this, as we’ll provide all the support you need. But, friends and family cheering you on is pretty awesome, so you are welcome to use a crew if you like.
Crew can set up a spot in the parking area in front or behind a vehicle or you can create your own little aid station on the grass right at the start/finish area. We need to be sure there is room for all the racers, so be considerate when staking out your personal aid station. Your crew cannot access you while you are on the dirt trail portion of the course.
Pacing is allowed after 9:00 p.m., 12 hours into the race. Be careful to let other runners pass.
Elijah Bristow State Park (38263 Wheeler Rd, Dexter, OR 97431) is 17 miles (22 minutes) southeast of Eugene, Oregon and 122 miles (2 hours) from Portland, Oregon.
There is an adequate amount of parking available, so please consider carpooling so that everyone can have a spot. We have a public Google carpool sheet where you post if you are looking for or offering a ride.
All Elijah Bristow 24/12 runners earn a Silipint cup. You’ll get this at bib pick up and can use it during the race, at the aid station. The top three men and top three women will receive prizes from our sponsors. Everyone who completes at least 100-miles will earn a special Backcountry Trophy. And there are raffle prizes that all racers have a chance to win.
