This year's LOST 118-Mile Endurance Run will be held February20,21, 2016 in Okeechobee, Florida. The race is a circumnavigation of Lake Okeechobee using the Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail (LOST), a mostly paved and completely level pathway that encircles the lake and runs along the top of the Herbert Hoover Dike, the earthen wall that keeps the lake within its nominal boundaries.
Local time: 5:58 AM
The run will begin at 7:00AM EST, Saturday, February 20th on the dike at the intersection of Routes 441 and 78 just south of Okeechobee, Florida.
This year the race will not go around the entire lake, due to construction, so it will start going counterclockwise to Nicodemus Slough, then return to the start. Then the runners will go clockwise around the lake to Port Mayaca and return to the start.The dike itself is flat, smooth pavement except for a 20 mile stretch that is a mix of two track road and rough, crushed coral rock.
