Why you should join us
Welcome to the Destin Beach Ultra Runs 2016! The 24hr/100M will start on Sat, the rest of the races start on Sunday. This is an event your family will WANT to attend with you! These 100M, 50M, 50K, and 24hr races take place completely on the white sand beaches of Destin, Florida and next to the emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico to benefit the Special Operations Warrior Foundation.
The Special Operations Warrior Foundation provides a college education for the children left behind when a spec ops member is killed in combat or training.
We have the top aid stations in ultra running, top of the line long sleeve Under Armour race shirts, serious medals, a very organized race that runs on time, the greatest group of volunteers you have ever seen, and a post-race pool party right at the finish!
If you want to run a race like no other, in a location with beauty that can not be matched anywhere in the world...then this is your race!
Please look through our website as it provides the answers to most questions. If you don't find your answer there, contact us on our Facebook page or email email@example.com. We always have time to make sure our runners know everything they need to finish and have a great time!
100+ Mile (27 Hour) Event *read before registering*
Our new 100+ mile event is unique in ultra running. In 2015 only 5 of the 19 people who started the race made it to the finish. From 4pm on Sat evening until 5am on Sun morning, 100 mile entrants will run as many miles as possible on the 2 mile loop with the 24hr runners.
IF, at 5am, you have completed 50 miles or more, you will start the last 50 miles on the normal 50 mile course.
If you have NOT completed 50 miles by 5am Sunday, you will not meet the cut-off and receive a DNF.
The runners who cover the most miles (ie: run the most before 5am Sun AND finish the last 50 before 7pm Sun) will be declared the winners. If two runners complete the same distance, the tie breaker will be finish time.
Accurate 100+ mile results for 2015 can be found at http://www.beachultra.com/100-mile-results.html. The results loaded in Ultrasignup only give the runners credit for completing at least 100 miles in 27hrs and the order is correct. Remember, the winner is the one with the most miles at the end- not who finishes first.
We strive to keep entry fees as low as possible-just covering our race expenses. But by doing this, we count on our runners to individually raise money from their friends and family for the SOWF. Watch a short video about the Special Operations Warrior Foundation by clicking on the logo.
