The new all-weather track on the Riverbank High School campus was the scene of a 24-hour endurance race over the weekend.

According to organizers, the Riverbank One Day Classic race was created to give runners, regardless of ability, the opportunity to see just how many miles they can get done in 24 hours.

Whether chasing national records or just attempting a first “ultra.” this is the race for you, organizers said.

The certified 400 meter track was to be both an IAU Bronze Label event and USATF Sanctioned.

“For our elite athletes, this is a great opportunity to make the 24 Hour National Team,” organizers added. “For those that don’t think they will be breaking any world’s records, this event will give you the opportunity to push yourself to whatever goals you have in mind.”

This race was run on the brand new track at Riverbank High School. The weather was expected to be very favorable to running, giving everyone the best conditions to reach their goals.

They also offered a 12-hour event and a relay for those wanting to drag their friends into the party.

The bulk of the proceeds were earmarked to support the Riverbank High School Cross Country Team and the Center for Human Services.

Race results were to be available online.
