NEW* 4 Hours of FUN
New for 2018, 4 Hours of FUN!!! We are introducing a low cost "test the waters (literally at Tippecanoe) fun run to invite runners to see what this 8HOH thing is really all about. The 4 hour fun run is designed to give newer runners and road runners a chance to check out some of the trails and parks in Southwest Florida while experiencing what an Ultra Aid Station has to offer. There will be some swag for the runners but 4HOF miles will not count towards the 8HOH Series unless the runner bumps up to an 8HOH race later in the Series. The Championship will not have a 4HOF at this point. Come join us for 4HOF and stick around to enjoy the show in the 2nd half!
