Sweat, Swat n Swear!

4771 Trail 16

Inverness, FL 50K, 25K, 10K

This Event Took Place Sun. May 28, 2023

Race Details:

Due to some unforeseen construction at the Holder Mine Campground, the 2024 Sweat, Swat, n' Swear will be starting and finishing at MUTUAL MINE CAMPGROUND, like it has for the past several years. There will still be a new "short" distance: of 10 miles instead of the 10K.

The race uses the C & D loop of the Citrus Tract in the Withlacoochee Forest.
50K start: 6:30am
25K start: 7:30am
10M start: 8:00am

There will be hydration stations on the route, approximately 5 miles apart and staffed aid stations with food & drinks every 8 miles. Runners are required to carry some type of container for fluids and carrying food/gels/calories is highly recommended.

COURSE DETAILS:
The trail will be marked with orange trail tape and the occasional sign.
All three distances will start and end in Mutual Mine Campground and each distance is one single loop.
A course map is available on our website.
Race cut-off time is 4:30 pm.

AID STATIONS:
Aid stations will have water, GU Roctane, soda, pickles, chips, PB&J, fruit, and ice. There will be three full aid stations on the course and three “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).
