After last years ‘ disaster ‘ in the Ultracentric 24 and 48 hour races, USA ultra running have switched their selection trial for the World 24 hour Championships to Cleveland this weekend.

“As one of the people who is helping to plan this event, I can say that the course and the race organization are as good as they can be. I am very much looking forward to running it.”
Connie Gardner, accomplished ultrarunner and member of the U.S. National 24-Hour and 100k teams.

“I am looking forward to running a flat and fast course where the real possibility exists of setting PRs and breaking records.  This will be a first-class race and I encourage all out-of-towners and Clevelanders to sign up.”
Debra Horn,
three-time member of the U.S. National 24-Hour Team and Silver-Medalist at the 2009 24-Hour World Challenge

“The race committee and sponsors of the NorthCoast24 event are committed to creating a quality event with the needs of each individual runner in mind. We will do everything possible in order to enhance and maximize every participant’s experience, including safety, enjoyment, and personal performance.”
Dan Horvath, Race Director
