A 24-hour run is a form of ultra running, in which a competitor runs as far as he can in 24 hours.
They are typically held on a 1 to 2km loops or occasionally 400-meter tracks.
Top runners will often run 200km or more, depending on conditions and the best can go beyond 270km.
Some participants will have a crew to help them while some would just set up a camp with all the gear and supplies they need, near the starting area to access each loop.
24-hour run is very common in the European countries and the USA and most often enough, are participated also by runners from neighbouring countries in the region.
It is in fact considered as one of the less hardcore ULTRA RUNNING, as compared to 100km, 48-hour, 72-hour, 6-days race in France and Hungary , 8-days race in Monacco, 18-days Trans Gaulle in France, Badwater race in the USA, Spartathlon in Greece and the Tor Des Geants in the Alps.
It is one of the very few sports be it for leisure or competition purpose, that can be participated by people from not just all walks of life but also all age groups and all physical conditions – a 80-years old retiree who wears a hearing aid, a blind, one with an artificial limb etc etc and they all do it at the SAME TIME, under the SAME CONDITIONS and SAME REGULATIONS. It is a time when everyone is equal.
