12 Hours of Road America


The Main Event!


Run, Ride, Duathlon 12 Hours, overnight on one of the most historic race tracks as a team or individual

Aug 13, 7:00 PM Road America Race Track

Event Sponsor



The 12 Hours of Road America is the "Queen" event of Endurafest.  Ride, Run or Duathlon as an individual or team as long as you can or want to.  And when you're not racing, enjoy the non stop party atmosphere in Victory Lane


Athletes race on the historic 4 miles race track.  Each athlete will get a space in Pit Lane for their bike as well as a camp site. 


Athletes will ride and run with the goal to do as many "complete" duathlons which consist of 3 cycling laps and 1 run lap.  Athletes can do each in any order they wish.  Laps will be counted as long as athletes cross the start and finish mats of the bike and run routes.

Solo Event

Solo athletes and their crew are working to complete as many laps on the 4 mile race track as possible over the course of 12 Hours.  This will be epic!  How far can you go!?

Team Event

  • Teams of 3 or more athletes can race together!  There is no limit on the size of a team. There is no limit to the amount of athletes who can be on course at once. Every person on the team will have their own timing chip and are still eligible for individual awards

  • Teams will also be automatically entered into the relay race as well.  Each team will receive a dedicated relay timing chip that they can pass along to any athlete on their team they choose. Teams can still race in groups but the furthest distance the team chip goes will count toward the relay competition. 

  • Teams will have the option to reserve their team tent location in Pit Lane during registration.  Teams can choose between 15ft spaces with power access for $10 or 10ft spaces for $5.  This is an optional add-on.

  • Want a team discount?  Bring your squad of 3 or more.  Once the third member joins the team, the first two members will receive a 20% refund while the third and all subsequent team members will register at the 20% off discounted amount.

A charging station and additional lights will be available for purchase in the paddock area.
