The Tallahassee Ultra Distance Classic is a road race being held for the 40th year at beautiful Wakulla Springs State Park situated just 15 miles south of Tallahassee, Florida’s capital city. A throwback to “the old Florida,” Wakulla Springs State Park is home to the world’s largest freshwater spring and the historic Wakulla Springs Lodge. This park was also the site of the filming of a number of Tarzan movies and The Creature From the Black Lagoon. We offer 50k & 50 mile distances as well as a USATF certified marathon distance, which will be eligible as a Boston Qualifying race. The TUDC will continue to unite some of America’s fastest ultra distance runners with those testing themselves at the ultra distance for the first time, for it offers a flat, fast, USATF certified and sanctioned, paved 10k loop course, great volunteer support, plenty of on-course aid and generally runner-friendly weather. Entrants must be at least 16 years of age. All runners will receive a shirt or other runner gift TBD and finishers medal. Top overall male & female finishers, top masters, and top grandmasters in each race will be awarded a pottery creation by local artist Brian Bachman. Proceeds will be used to support running activities in the area and the Friends of Wakulla Springs organization.
