    This was my second time at the Goose Bumps 24 hour run. This time we ran on a shortened 1.85 mile course as a result of high water. The course wasn’t as interesting as the longer one that I ran on two years ago, but it was long enough that I didn’t feel like I had to run a zillion laps to hit my mileage goal. I ended up staying for the awards ceremony, which gave me a new perspective on the race. They started out with a door prize drawing, which lasted over an hour. They then presented cumulative mileage awards, which amounted to hoodies for those with over 100 miles cumulative mileage, and patches that could be added to the jacket for 200, 300, and up to 500 miles. They also served a catered taco bar and had a beer pod with four different craft beers (which they ran out of incidentally). The part that I liked the best about this race is all of the families that participated, both running and volunteering. There were people running with dogs, baby strollers, and whole families running together. It was really a refreshing change from the big race scene. If you like laid back races, this one is for you.

    This event is obviously a labor of love for race director Richard Chrz. Richard has been putting this on for several years as a fundraiser for the Local Lupus Alliance. He is also afflicted by Lupus himself, so puts on this race so that others can run when he can’t. Based on the amount of volunteers, food, and course markings, it appears that Richard spends almost the whole year in planning this event. He left nothing to chance, from the glow sticks that were placed every 5 feet on both sides of the entire length of the course, to the broad range of full meals offered at the aid station, to the multiple lap counters. I wasn’t able to stay for the full 24 hours, but I was amazed at the breakfast that was laid out for the runners. I ate thick-sliced pepper bacon cooked in maple syrup, rosemary seasoned roasted potatoes, and a cheesy egg bake. Participants who completed a cumulative total of over 100 miles or 200 miles over the years that they participated in this event were given a hoodie and a patch. All of this was for a free-will donation. This truly is a labor of love, and seems more like an extended family reunion than a race. I foresee that this event (it’s not just a race) will continue to grow in the future. Hopefully, it won’t outgrow the close-knit family feel and warmth that I saw at this year’s race.
