RESCHEDULED: 2020 National 24 Hour Challenge
Questions, Comments, Suggestions


The board of directors of the National 24 Hour Challenge met on Sunday, April 11 and determined that due to the increasing number of COVID-19 cases in Michigan, the restrictions on the number of people who can gather indoors and outdoors, and school district facilities being closed to all non-school activities, that we will not be able to hold the 2021 National 24 Hour Challenge on June 19-20, 2021.

We are rescheduling the 2021 National 24 Hour Challenge for the weekend of August 7-8, 2021.

Our schedule for the weekend will be the same as before. You can arrive and start setting up at noon on Friday, August 6. The 2021 National 24 Hour Challenge will start at 8:00 a.m. ET on Saturday, August 7 and conclude at 8:00 a.m. ET Sunday, August 8.

We are extending the registration fee of $150 through June 30. From July 1 through July 30, the registration fee will be $170, and from August 1 through August 6 the registration fee will be $200.

If you will be unable to participate in the National 24 Hour Challenge on August 7-8, you may roll-over your registration to 2022 or receive a full refund of your entry fee. Please email if you want to roll-over your registration or receive a refund.

The event will be held subject to all of the COVID-19 safety requirements mandated by the CDC and State of Michigan on August 7-8. The board of directors encourages all participants to be vaccinated but at this time is not requiring vaccinations for participants.

Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us at or call (616) 953-0234. A sincere thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through the logistics of rescheduling the event. Safety is, and always will be, our number one priority.
