Circle ENduRANCE

3, 6, 12, and 24-Hour Option - November 23, 2024

Welcome to the 2nd Circle Series Event hosted at the wonderful Ringgold High School in Ringgold GA.

The Circle Event Series is brought to you by the Race Directors of the Mad Backyard Ultra, Locomotion Endurance Event, and the ER 50 Miler and 50k. The 6, 12, and 24-hour running track race is an endurance event where participants aim to cover the maximum distance possible within the required time frame. Runners circle a track continuously, taking breaks as needed, with the goal of completing as many laps as they can within the time limit. This grueling event tests runners' physical and mental stamina, requiring strategic pacing, nutrition management, and mental fortitude to push through fatigue and clock in as many miles as possible. Participants often experience physical and emotional highs and lows throughout the race, making it a challenging yet rewarding test of endurance.

ER 50 Mile / 50K

Welcome to the inaugural ER 50 Mile and 50K developed by the Race Directors of the MAD Backyard Ultra and the Locomotion Endurance Event. The ER 50M/K is an out-and-back course starting at Camp Jordan in East Ridge. The 50M/K will follow the South Chickamauga Greenway for 12 miles to the Chattanooga Riverwalk that follows the Tennessee River. This will be one of the most scenic greenway runs you will ever partake in. The course is set to amaze and allow all participants to complete the race. The course is flat and runnable with a few hills. Come and conquer your goals and maybe even achieve a PR.

16 HOUR CUTOFF FOR BOTH 50 MILE AND 50K - Very Doable!!!

Brief Intro: I started my running journey in late 2015. I weighed 310 pounds with no previous running experience. I quickly experienced the joys of running through constant improvement with body image and performance. Running has turned into a passion and lifestyle. I have found success in short- and long-term distance running and am excited to share my passion and knowledge!

My name is Kristen Weitz. I was born in  Texas and spent most of my childhood years growing up in the Chicagoland area! I am married with 3 fur children. During the day I’m serving seniors and when I get home, I hit the pavement or trail! I started running in high school, which quickly went from a social outlet to a competitive sport for me. I went on to run for Lewis University where I held the 3000m steeple school record and graduated on an All-American team in 2016. For a long time after I lost my spark for running, until moving to the Chattanooga area! Since then I have completed my first marathon and a few 50-mile races!
