The Elimination Challenge is a unique concept you’ve never seen before, unless you’ve run in an Operation Jack Elimination Challenge race!
The course is a 1.69-mile loop and the first lap lasts 21 minutes. Runners who reach the start/finish before the end of the lap wait for the start of the next lap. Runners who don’t reach the start/finish are eliminated. The second lap has a 20-minute time limit. The third lap will take 19s. The race will continue until there are no runners remaining. If no runners complete a lap, or fewer than three runners complete the final lap with runners beating the time limit, the final order of standings will be determined by order of finish on the previous lap.
