Q: Is this an April Fool's joke?

A: Do we look like we're joking?  Ah, that's right you can't see us!  This is for real.  Our hope is that this will be fun experience that will bring a smile to your face during this difficult time.

 

Q: What do toilet paper rolls have to do with the distances?

A:We did a little research and found out that:

  • 1 Toilet Paper Roll when unwound = 302 feet.

In keeping with the "COVID-19" theme:

  • 19 Toilet Paper Rolls = 1.08 miles -- Single Ply Distance

  • 38 Toilet Paper Rolls = 2.16 miles -- Double Ply

  • 57 Toilet Paper Rolls = 3.24 miles - Triple Ply (a real thing!)

And we added in a 19K distance for those who want to run a little further.

Q: Do I have to do this alone?

A: Absolutely not!  This would be a great way for your entire family to get outside, burn off some energy and make a memory.  Family discounts are available!

Q: How do I provide proof of completion?

A: Email us a screenshot of a fitness app on your phone, or a fitness watch that shows the distance completed.  Or you can email us your finishing time.  We will work on the honor system!  Send your e-mail to admin@runnersarsenal.com

Q: When can I expect to get my bib, medal, and t-shirt?

A: We will make every attempt to get your race goodies in the mail within 2-4 weeks after completion of your race.

Q: The Run on Toilet Paper: Does that mean I have to wear toilet paper shoes?

A: You are not required to, but you absolutely can if you feel like you have enough squares to spare. You do you.  If you choose to do so, however, we recommend using at least double ply toilet paper to ensure proper cushioning.

Q: Am I required to carry toilet paper with me?

A: We can't force you to do anything, but carrying TP with you might come in handy, especially if you are running the ultra.

TESTIMONIALS

Julie Smith

"I did this run with my family.  None of us had a way to measure how far we'd gone so we just used a fresh roll of toilet paper.  Rolled it out, ran to the end, rolled it up, rolled it out, and so forth.  In hindsight maybe we shouldn't have done a trail run.  The stream crossings were really tough to measure...."

Jud Walker

"Sometimes I walk down the hallway at work with toilet paper stuck on my shoe.  So this race was perfect for me.  It's how I roll."

Mat Smith

"I was a little confused at first, but it finally clicked and it all worked out in the end.  The kids and I had plenty of time to construct the teepee in the backyard.  It was actually a good bonding time. Maybe we shouldn't have done the ultra because running around the teepee 2345 times left us all a wee bit dizzy.  I'd recommend the single ply."
