Funest 50k @ Carter Rd
This is a challenging course with rolling hills that twist and turn through an old abandon phosphate mine area. You will run down sand & dirt trails that have been crafted over the years to become the awesome Carter rd Moutain bike trails! We love to run this wild and fun and like to bring a race to you folks to enjoy! This is a fun run to challenge yourself. You can TRY to race it hard but...good luck! 👍
Even the best of the best would still see pacing in the 10 minute range in some areas. It's a very fun course while also being very tough in the same breath. This is not easy!!!!!
I must stress...this is about as hard as it gets in Florida!
Limited to 150 runners
Awards: Top 3 Overall M/F & 1st masters M/F
Everyone will receive socks, finisher sticker & award
This will be the Funest 50k you will run, walk or crawl in Florida! (refer to definition of Funest in photos)
Again...This is a FUN but TOUGH course! You should carry a charged phone with you in case of injuries or you have a hard time following a clearly marked path!

The course is a 10k loop / 3 loops for the 30k / 5 for the 50k
