What is the point of this race?
The point of this race is to see and experience the WILD side of Florida, The off the beaten track, and the places you didn’t know existed. The beauty is unparalleled and the wildlife is right there with it. You will likely see 100+ types of animals during the race most of them birds. You will get an epic sunset, sunrise and likely a sunset again for most of you.
120 miles with about 4,000 ft of gain but more scenery and wildlife than likely any other race in North America. This is the WILD FLORIDA that Ponce De Leon saw. From Savannas to Dry Prairie to cypress swamps on elevated board walks to pine flats this course has it all!
The race while on paper is flat and looks easy. It is far from it. You’ll experience unparalleled sunrises and a sunset. You’ll run through swamps, prairies, palms and things you didn’t know existed.
This is a race where we don’t hold your hand. There is not an aid station every 4 miles. You will need a pack and the correct gear. You have 7-15 miles between aid stations. You will run alone for long sections of this course. Parts of this course are extremely fast, other parts will be extremely technical and you’ll come to a crawl.
We will cover approximately 105 miles on the Florida National Scenic Trail. You will have single track, double track, dirt roads and about 1 mile of paved road and 3 miles of a paved bike path. To make this race possible we cross 3 state forests, a national forest, 5 WMAs, a state park, lots of conservation land and 4 counties.
The course is not marked along the Florida Trail as there are blazes, signs and a smart phone app to easily follow it. Where we divert off the Florida Trail it will be HEAVILY MARKED!
