On Saturday, September 25th, 2021 race through an urban style 100 miler running through the beautiful sights of Miami, Florida. You will be running through some of Miami's hottest neighborhoods; Wynwood, Miami Beach, Key Biscayne, Coconut Grove, Brickell and more.
The course will wind through some of Miami's most historical and scenic areas. You will run through farmlands, historical neighborhoods, down Ocean Drive, the lively Calle Ocho and many other of Miami's secret and not so secret gems.
Runners will be 100% dependent on their crew or may choose to race unsupported using drop bags. There are no aid stations only checkpoints. Runners will need to navigate their way to checkpoints throughout the city to receive their next batch of directions. The course map will not be available beforehand. Part of the challenge and uniqueness of this race will be to navigate the directions given and to successfully reach the next checkpoint for further directions on the course. (Think Amazing Race minus the crazy challenges- because running 100 miles should be enough of a challenge ;) )
The first portion of the course map will be available during race briefing the evening before the race. The rest of the course map will be given to runners and crew as they check in along the race between certain manned checkpoints that will be placed along the route; approximately every 15 - 20 miles.
