from the Greensboro Lady Gaters on Twitter and you have to be proud of this young lady, Elliott Porter…Running a mile every hour for 26 straight hours, for a total of 26 miles run, in an elapsed time of 3 hours/51 minutes and 19 seconds…

Just staying up and awake for those 26 straight hours would not be an easy task…

But staying up 26 hours and running a mile every hour and getting all of those miles in, in under 9 minutes in most cases, that is truly quite the workout….And it had to be getting tough when she/Elliott Porter hit those 2, 3, 4, and 5am in the morning mile markers….

This is some sort of accomplishment and a job well done, by Elliott Porter….Read below for the word from Twitter and the 2024 Greensboro Lady Gaters on this outstanding effort by Elliott Porter….

    There’s a guy that runs something like this out of BellBuckle, Tennessee…

    They run a mile every hour until the last man or woman is still standing, and every mile you run must be under 6 minutes or you are out of the race…It may go on for a week, or the endurance race may be done, in three or four days…You run basically in the race organizers back yard and when night hits they do have lights, but you end up running through the woods too….Rain, shine, moon shining, you name it…I think they run the race in late November…

    It is a crazy race, and the winners have to out-last everybody else….They usually have around 50-75 entrants…
