Calling all relentless solo 24-hour runners and endurance enthusiasts! Are you ready to push your limits and take on a challenge that will test your mental and physical strength like never before? Brace yourselves for the ultimate feat of endurance – the Saltire24 Triple Crown! We've upped the ante, and this time, it's not just about running for 24 hours straight. Oh no, it's so much more than that!

The Saltire24 Triple Crown Challenge:

The Saltire24, known for organising a thrilling 24-hour solo running event, is proud to present a groundbreaking new challenge that will separate the extraordinary from the ordinary. This time, we're not just looking for those who can run tirelessly for an entire day; we also

want those who can master the art of strict pacing and conquer various distances within that time frame.

The Challenge Breakdown:

  1. Stage 1: 7 laps in 6 hours: Your journey begins with a swift and strategic 30 miles to be completed within the first 6 hours. This initial leg is all about setting the pace, finding your rhythm, and mentally preparing for the miles ahead.

  2. Stage 2: 15 laps in 12 hours: As the sun continues its celestial journey, so do you! The second stage demands a disciplined yet daring effort to cover an impressive 63 miles (100 kilometers!!) in a span of 12 hours. It's a true test of endurance, and only the determined will prevail.

  3. Stage 3: 100 miles in 24 hours: Finally, the grand finale awaits – a 100-mile journey that will bring you face to face with your limits and the sweet taste of triumph. This last stretch demands unwavering commitment, inner strength, and an unyielding spirit.

The Saltire24 Triple Crown Glory

The stakes are high, and the challenge is nothing short of monumental. But with great challenge comes great reward. Should you manage to conquer all three stages within the allotted time, you'll be crowned as a Saltire24 Triple Crown champion – an elite status reserved for those who embody the true essence of endurance running.

Strict Pacing: The Key to Success

To achieve the Saltire24 Triple Crown, strict pacing is of the utmost importance. Managing your energy and speed throughout the entire 24 hours will be the ultimate challenge. Resist the temptation to sprint at the beginning, as the true test comes during the latter stages when fatigue sets in.

Preparing for the Challenge

Preparation is the key to triumph. Train your body and mind diligently, simulating the demands of each stage during your training sessions. Focus on stamina, nutrition, hydration, and recovery techniques to ensure you're ready for this extraordinary endeavor.

Safety First

Safety is paramount, and we take it very seriously. Medical personnel and aid stations will be strategically stationed along the route to attend to any needs or concerns. As you embark on this incredible journey, remember to listen to your body and seek assistance if necessary.

Triple Crown Broken Down

If you participate in the Solo 6hr, 12hr, or 24hr race and achieve the targets, you can compete the following year to try and complete every stage within your allotted time.
