August 6th through 7th 2016
It's dark. No fancy flood lights, just your headlamp. You're on your fourth lap and pushing to win. The 24 hours of Shale Hell takes you to your limits, and puts you beyond them.
Not quite ready for 24 hours? Our 8 hour option is the perfect compliment to our winter Polar Bear 8h challenge - and if you have crew, or friends who want to help you over night, our single lap 5k or 10k will let them race, and be there for you when the lights go out.
