Come join us in the Citrus Tract of the Withlacoochee Forest in Inverness, FL
The Sweat, Swat 'n Swear offers 50K, 25K, & 10K Distances...so there is a distance for everyone!
50K start: 6:30am
25k start: 7:30am
10K start: 8:00am
There will be aid stations and hydration stations on the route, approximately 5 miles apart. Runners are required to carry some type of container for fluids.
The trail will be marked with orange trail tape and the occasional sign.
All three distances will start and end in the Mutual Mine Campground and each distance is one single loop.
A course map is available on our website (www.a1ultraevents.wordpress.com) and on Facebook... A1 Ultra Events
Race cut-off time is 4:30 pm.
Aid stations will have water Tailwind, soda, pickles, chips, PB&J, fruit, and ice. There will be several full aid stations (10K = 1, 25K = 2, 50K = 4) on the course and a few “hydration only” stations. However, ALL participants are expected to carry a handheld, waist pack, or hydration pack. It will be HOT and access to hydration is vital for success (and your health). Please note: there are not any “facilities” on the course. Please pack supplies.
50k runners - you will pass your drop bag 2 times. (Approximately Mile 12 & 28) Please make sure your name is on your bag and that you place it in the “used” pile after you leave the aid station the 2nd time. Please use a small bag or cooler only. 25k runners - you are welcome to have a drop bag, but keep in mind that you won’t reach it until approximately 3.5 miles from the finish.
Every finisher will receive a finisher's medal and the Top 3 males and females from each distance will receive a special award. Once you cross the finish line and earn your finishers medal, grab a camp chair and join us for a post-race picnic.
