Full Plot Summary

Opening Theme

"Evidence" by Daisy x Daisy

Fairy Tail holds its annual 24-Hour Endurance Road Race and everyone in the guild participates (with the exception of Mirajane and Makarov) to win and avoid winding up in last place, which entails a punishment from the master.

Rules Of The Race:

  • No flying magic is allowed but any other magic is okay.
  • The race lasts 24 hours.
  • Once a runner reaches the peak of Mt. Ivor, the runner must grab a Wyvern scale and run back down the mountain to the finish line.

Winners and Losers:

The first, second, third place winners are Happy, Wendy, and Charle, respectively.

Even though there is a four way tie between Natsu, Gajeel, Jet, and Gray, they are still losers according to Markarov.

Makarov's Punishment For Last Place:

The losers must do an embarrassing photo spread (like cross-dressing) for the Weekly Sorcerer, a magazine that shows the most popular and beautiful mages, and they must do 20 pages with a one-week, all-access interview.

Points of Interest

  • Jason, the photographer for The Weekly Sorcerer, makes his second appearance since Episode 49. He is doing the play-by-play.
  • Mirajane is the expert commentator of the race.
  • Freed uses his runes for the second time in the series since the Battle of Fairy Tail arc.
  • Juvia accidentally turns herself into water.
  • Ambiguity: No one has reveal what kind of punishment that Makarov did for last year's race.
  • Erza requips into a bunny costume (literally bunny costume not sexy playboy bunny).
  • The prize for first place is recognition and winning the cheers of everyone.
  • Juvia wants to see Gray's photo spread.
  • Aesop Fable's Reference: Jet slept the night of the race until Happy wakes him up in the late afternoon.
  • Filler Connection: The Wyvern scales could have come from the Rainbow of Sakura's mission suggesting this episode continues after the Hanami party. Those scales must have belong to the Blizzardvern (White Wyvern).
