Held at Miller Motorsports Park on August 3 and 4, the Tribal Run challenges racers with an overnight 5K trail relay. Racers start and finish at a base camp lit by a large campfire for visibility. The race's route consists of three 5K courses that each start at the camp. Running begins at sunset and continues until sunrise the following morning, with teams and individuals attempting to complete as many courses as they can in the allotted time. Teams send out one runner at a time. When they're not running, athletes can enjoy Tribal performers and socialize with other teams.Tribal Run
In man's distant past, primitive tribes proved their devotion to the sun god with an epic, all-night journey. Tribe members would sprint from dusk till dawn and, according to legend, collect fallen bits of the sun with the hope of keeping the giant orb burning for the coming year.
Tribal Run honors this spirit quest by convening teams of adventurous runners for an all-night relay race and party. Athletes connect to their more primal selves through the two-day soiree, as each team, or "tribe," relays runners through challenging 5K trail courses. Events begin at sundown at base camp, with tribes sending out one runner at a time through the trails that circle back into base camp. Each event contains two to four separate 5K trails with their own distinctive slew of loops and climbs. As their teammates power through outdoor trails, tribes enjoy music and socialize with their brethren at base camp until sunrise, when everyone assembles and awards are handed out. Racers are encouraged to bring their own headlamp, running shoes, and war paint made from dried play-doh.
