Lastest Not Fastest
Sat October 5, 2024
The Lastest Not Fastest™ race is a last-person-standing concept, with runners heading out, on the hour, every hour, to complete a 4.13-mile loop on flat trails. That’s a 14:32 pace. If you complete the loop in 40-minutes, you get 19 minutes to rest and get ready for the next loop. Say it takes you 50 minutes, you are still in the race, but you have just 9 minutes to recover. But if it takes you 60 minutes or longer, you are done. Racers will keep at it, running loops every hour, until there is just one runner left standing, er running.
The race is in Washington, on Hamilton Island, beside the town of North Bonneville, in the Columbia River Gorge. The course is a 4.13-mile loop that has just 103 feet of gain. This location provides ample crew space and gives runners easier access to their vehicles during the race. It is just a one-hour drive from Portland, making it easy for friends and family to spectate and support you.
