PYLLON EXPOSURE – 6 / 12 / 24 HOUR RUNS:
SURRENDER IS YOUR ONLY OPTION


GENERAL INFORMATION

We are excited to launch Pyllon Race Events. Exposure by Pyllon is a unique race concept that will provide you with all the motivation you need to train hard over the next few months. Exposure has different race options to suit everyone and is not just for Pyllon athletes.It’s an event with a difference, and you will need to be ready to embrace uncertainty:

1. It’s a race – There will be winners, and for many, just finishing the race will be a huge accomplishment
2. The race will start and finish at a set time, just like a normal event, so you’ll be going up against others in a ‘live’ environment
3. As the name suggests, this is an event that you’ll have to surrender to. It won’t be easy, and for the racer, there will be the uncertainty and challenge of not knowing exactly what distance you’ll run and how to survive the full exposure time.


WHAT IS IT?

Exposure by Pyllon is a virtual ultra running event starting on the 24th April. You can expose yourself to one of three race options – 6 hours,12 hours or 24 hours.

Once selected, in order to complete the race you’ll have to commit to taking part for the full race period (6, 12, or 24 hours). However, you won’t know exactly what distance you must run. At the start of each hour during the event, we will send you a message revealing how many miles you will have to cover during that hour. It’s then up to you to choose how fast you want to run – run hard and gain some rest time before the next hourly exposure? Pace it more carefully knowing that you’ll have to survive another 5,11, or 23 hours?
Already excited? Or scared that you might feel too exposed?
