A 24-hour run is a form of Ultramarathon, in which a competitor runs as far as they can in 24 hours. They are typically held on 1km up to 2.5km loops or occasionally 400 meter tracks.


Top runners will often run 200km or more, depending on the conditions, and the best can go beyond 270km. Some participants will have a crew to help them, but others just set up a camp with all the gear and supplies they need near the starting are to access each loop.


Often 24-hour events are combined with 6-hour, 12-hour, and 48-hour events. 24-hour runs have also been held in relay formats, with runners completing a mile each in succession for 24 hours. Often these events are not internationally sanctioned, and are more for charitable purposes.
