A premier 100-mile and 100-furlongs running event and Western States Qualifying Race. Great for first-timers and veterans alike! Come run our race and see beautiful, wild Florida!
Big News….The Long Haul 100 has moved! The 2024 race will be held in Colt Creek State Park in Lakeland, FL. The Colt Creek State Park features beautiful trails maintained by the park staff. Runners will travel through "longleaf pine flatwoods, thick cypress domes, and open vistas. This park is home to many species of plants and animals - including bald eagles, white-tailed deer, American alligators, otters, gopher tortoise, and Sherman’s fox squirrel". We are still tweaking the course, but it will still be fast and flat. Although change can be very hard, we are confident you will really love the new Long Haul 100 at Colt Creek State Park.
ALL 100 Mile finishers will receive a belt buckle and those who finish in under 30 hours will also earn a ticket into the WSER lottery.
