Momma's 50k & Trail Marathon
The 3rd annual ( This ain't yo ) Momma's 50k & Trail Marathon has only 1 rule: Rule 62 = Don't take yourself so damn seriously!! Seriously though we at Sombrero Running Events like to have fun and enjoy the beautiful scenery of this majestic trail here in NEFL. The Pioneer Trail IS NOT YOUR TYPICAL FLORIDA TRAIL, and the reason for that is each section has its own diverse style of terrain with Section 4 ( 2.7 miles ) having some of the most vertical and technical terrain you can find in Florida.
The Pioneer Trail is located in Jennings State Forest in Middleburg, Florida ( Jacksonville area ) and is a hidden gem that was created in 2019 and is well maintain and mostly single track that has a few waterfalls and walkover stream crossings. It is one of the most diverse trail systems you will find in Florida and has several beautiful vistas and traverses along the Black Creek Ravines.
The 50k course is an out and back that traverses all of the sections of this diverse trail and is the same course as the Marathon with added mileage with an out n back of the newly added Section 5. The Marathon is an out and back course that starts at the Dunns Farm Trailhead and starts out on the newest section the Cross Cut section which is 2.5 miles of flat and scenic single track trail, it then goes into Section 4 which is 2.7 miles and has some beautiful vistas overlooking Black Creek so be sure to take the opportunity to get some scenic pictures on this section. After Section 4 is the "4 way" junction where you join the pink blazes of the trail and it takes you through and over Mt. Reagan ( yes we have mountains in Florida ) and just after this section you will enter the "enchanted forest" section or section 1 which is the southern terminus and is a flat and scenic 2.5 mile portion until you reach Indian Ford at the turnaround.
There is a 11 hr time limit on the 50k and 10 hr time limit on the marathon.
