The TACP Association is a 501c(19) non-profit organization. Our Mission is to remember our fallen, to honor the living, and to aid brothers in need.
WHAT: The 24-Hour Challenge is an exciting event to honor and remember our fallen brothers - and it is a fundraiser to help the Association continue to support the TACP Community.
WHEN: Run will start at 1200L on 26 March and concluding at 1159L on 27 March. Fundraising can start immediately.
FUNDRAISING: This site will help track your unit/organizations funds raised and help you advertise and promote the event. Participating units will be at the “Team Level” – all members of your team can email your Team’s link to their family and friends. You can also post your Team’s link on Facebook to increase your number of Supporters.
TRACKING MILEAGE: At least one runner per Unit/Organization will begin running and subsequent runners will be alternated for the entire 24-hour period. The runners do not run for the entire timeframe but are platooned around the clock in order to give them rest, to hydrate, and keep the motivation high. You can be creative with how they cover the time blocks. NOTE: One major change from the previous years is that the mileage for all runners for each time period will count. For example, if 5 personnel run 5 miles together, then tally 25 miles for that period.
WHERE TO RUN: These type events typically are done on a track, but any measured distance can be used as long as the team is aware of the course. Each team will need a recorder to keep track of the runners name, time, and overall tally of miles. You can also use GPS logs so runners are not forced to run a specific course or distance. Each Unit/Organization is responsible for tracking this information and turning it into the TACP Association ASAP after the event has concluded.
CATEGORIES: We have two categories this year, Team and Ultra. The Team category is defined as all members of a unit, families, retirees, civilians, kids, TDY members, deployed members, etc… The Ultra category will consist of any 2 runners. A unit may have as many Ultra teams as they wish, however, personnel competing in the Ultra category are not to be counted in the mileage for the Team category.
AWARDS: 1st & 2nd Place Team Distance Award; 1st & 2nd Place Ultra Distance Award; 1st & 2nd Place Fundraising Award
SIGN UP: Each team will designate a Team Lead – the Team Lead should contact the TACP Association immediately to get started.
