May 26-27, 2018, Riverside, CA
The Nanny Goat Race takes place on a ONE mile dirt loop on a horse ranch located in Riverside California. The course has 3 different surface types – asphalt, dirt, and turf. The asphalt and dirt are flat with excellent footing. The turf is irregular and no matter how many moles we assassinate others rapidly take their place. Knowing this helps folks with their walk/run decisions. Although you will pass the kitchen every lap avoid overeating and over coffee consumption.
12 Hour option: Opt for a daytime or night time 12 hour segment. The object is to complete as many laps as possible within an allotted 12 hour period.
24 Hour option: The object is to complete as many laps as possible within an allotted 24 hour period.
100 Mile option: A 100 mile option is available for any 24 hr runner who has completed 86 miles by 8:00 am on Sunday. Those runners may continue until reaching 100 miles or 12:00pm (whichever is sooner).
FRIDAY ARRIVALS (NO CHECK-INs)
No Friday check-ins. We would prefer you arrive at the venue after 12pm Friday. We understand that some travel itineraries may make that difficult, so if you do arrive before 12pm just know that the race staff will be prepping the site and you may be put to work.
6:00 am Saturday – Check-In
8:00 am Saturday – Start Time (pre-race announcements in the Goat Pen prior to start)
8:00 pm Saturday – Start Time 12 hr Night Runners
12:00 pm Sunday – Finish Time. Race Over.
THE AID STATION
Every Mile! Hot food, cold food, beverages, Saturday BBQ, Sunday Pancakes for the runners. TAILWIND electrolyte drink. Bring your own electrolyte if you prefer a different brand.
Crews, family, spectators, etc. are welcome to the food for $10.00/person. Your person will be issued a wristband indicating they are entitled to the buffet. Children helping themselves to aid station goodies is unacceptable. Children helping themselves to the food was a problem last year. Bad behaving children will be returned to their parents. If the behavior repeats, the entire family will be asked to leave the property. We expect non runners will understand that the runners get preference at the grill and buffet table.
NO PACERS ALLOWED
NO. If one friend or family member wants to accompany you for a lap or two after dark we won’t object. If this is your first 100 and you want your family to run the last lap with you, be our guest…. BUT remember the other runners have priority and cede the course to them without having to be asked. If pacing becomes an issue we will close the course to everyone but registered runners.
Bandits will be instructed to leave the property immediately. Bandit = someone running more than a few laps. You want to run more than a few laps? See Jean Ho at the timing station and bring cash.
SWAG & SHOP All runners receive a race tech shirt and a medal. There is no such thing as DNF at Nanny Goat. Only the 100 mile finishers receive a buckle. Different colors* of buckles for each finish. No age group awards. We will also have a table with race souvenirs for purchase. Bring cash!

1st NG100 – light blue
2nd NG100 – black

Timing is being conducted by Negative Split Running. You will be issued a bib with a timing chip on the bib. If you want your laps accurately counted don’t fold your bib, don’t wear it on your back, and don’t bury it under three layers of clothes. You will see your results on a timing screen in the barn. It may be crowded for the first lap or two and your name may scroll too fast to be easily seen. Wait a few laps before you start whining to the staff. Do not stop in from of the timing screen during the race or you will piss a lot of people off.
WHAT IF I CHANGE RACES?
Results are calculated by the number of miles you run regardless of which event you registered in. If you stop at or before 8:00 pm, your results will be counted in the 12 hr category. If you continue beyond 8:00 pm (even if it’s for only one lap) you will be counted in the 24 hr results. If you have run at least 86 miles by 8:00 am Sunday, you will be permitted to continue to 100 miles or 28 hours (whichever occurs first).
We make first aid kits available but we CANNOT dispense any pain medications. You must bring your own NSAIDs. The majority of injuries at the race will be blisters and/or dehydration. Both are under your own control. Plan accordingly. You are responsible for your own medical insurance. Our USATF sanction does not include medical insurance. In the event of a life threatening emergency we are a half mile from Riverside Fire EMTs.
