Last Man Standing

The Last Man Standing takes place at the same time and on the same course as RC Revolutions.  The course is approximately 1.6 miles long and participants will have 20 minutes (12.5 minutes/mile) to complete the first lap.  However, the time limit will decrease by one minute per lap and participants can not start laps early.  Lap two has a 19-minute time limit, lap three has a 18-minute time limit, and so on.  Make it in before the cutoff and you continue to the next lap.

The quicker you finish each lap, the more time you have to rest before the start of the next one.  However, the more time you spend resting, the tougher it may be to start back up again.  Balance smart early pacing with toughness and speed and you might come out victorious.  If not, with the unique makeup of this race, all non-winners will be able to see the winners cross the finish line!

The race should take just under 3 hours. After 2:54, runners will have completed 19.2 miles and will have to be running at quicker than a 6 minute/mile pace.

If no runners complete the final lap before the cutoff, the winner will be the person who completed the previous lap the quickest.  There will be prizes for top three male and top three female runners.

Will you be the last man standing?

  1. When you finish a lap are you allowed to just keep right on going to the next lap or do you have to wait until 20 minutes is up? Also, is there any penalty to being the last man to finish each lap?

    • Hi Jared! After you’re done with your lap you must wait until the start of the next lap! Strategy will come into play, and you’ll have to consider pace, resting, etc. And there is zero penalty for being the last man to finish each lap, just finish before the time is up!

  2. What is the elevation like for the course? Thanks! 🙂
