33 runners headed out on the 17th yard.
this one will take them to midnight.

physical challenges are not the obstacle the next 7 hours.
the challenge is mental.
even the best runners can struggle to keep a consistent effort between midnight and sunup.
what the 33 have to keep in their minds is that;
no matter how down you might feel right now
when the sun comes up it will be better.

not that easy,
when every runner’s mind will be trying to convince them that;
“this is just stupid!”

33 private wars are being fought out there on the dark and lonely road.
