Start your watch and climb aboard the airplane for the ride up
to 13,500 feet where you will leap out of a moving plane to
begin your 50 or 100 mile ultra run. The 120mph, 2 mile
(approx 10k feet) free-fall will last 50 seconds before you

Upon landing you will immediately climb out of your parachute
and begin running to complete the world's first ever
We can pretty much assure that you will get a PR for your

Start times and specifics might change slightly. Camping,
bathrooms and showers will be
on site. We will also be able to offer a "skydive only" option
with a discounted rate to friends or family that might want to
come and jump and not run. We will have games and activities
for the kids and non-runners as well. It's set on a contained
grassy lot with no traffic so you can bring the family, some
lawn chairs and spectate the landing zone and runners. Makes
for a perfect day.
