Because the purpose of the run is to raise awareness about water, the run is timed, but not in any official capacity. A timer is only started at the beginning and kept going until the final runner ends at the finish line. Individual Ultra Runner times may be published on our website. That service will not be provided by the Committee. If you do so, you may provide that to the Committee to post on the website.
