    Central IL 12 Hour Race

    How many months should I allow to train for my first 12 hour XC race. Race will be in central Illinois with moderate climbing, each lap will be approximately 9 miles. I've done a handful of 10-15 mile XC races.

    Was curious what race you are referring to. I am in Central Illinois and was not aware of a endurance race in the area.

    Hi - I am personal friends with one of the race organizers who is working with a race committee who is trying to put this race together for summer 2014. I don't want to say to much about it as I don't want word to spread in the area that this race is going to take place then it doesn't for one reason or another. From my understanding it sounds like a go for late June, but nothing has been finalized. I'm sure there will be local communication sent out if it does happen so stay tuned.....

    I'm from Central/Southern IL too and would be interested. I can't help answer your original question though because I've not done a 12 hour race yet. I plan to do some 3 hour events this spring and work my way up to a 12 hour.
