Results: BURCS Circadian Challenge

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to rage across the United States, the Berkshire Ultra Running Community for Service (BURCS) has sought ways to challenge runners in a virtual format. The newest creation from Race Director Benn Griffin was the Circadian Challenge. Runners had the entire month of July to choose a 24-hour window during which to run a half-marathon between 8 p.m. and 8 a.m., followed by another half-marathon during the 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. timeframe. Runners earned half of their finisher medal for each half-marathon completed. Additionally, runners had the option of running for the entire 24-hour period to log as many miles as they wanted. Several runners took advantage of that option to log ultramarathon distances.
