Brokentrack 3 *New Location*

Due to ongoing issues following Hurricane Ian, brokentrack has been relocated to The Haven South Campus in Venice, Florida about 30 minutes North of the original relocation. Brokentrack is Floridas only running Track Ultra, offering both 12 Hour and 6 Hour options. Pick a fixed time and knock out as many laps as you dare to. Do as much or as little as you can or want. Break some course records. It's going to be hot! It's going to be (kinda) fun.

Race Rule FAQ:

1. Direction Change: Course direction will change every 3 hours. When there is a direction change *you must turn around and complete that next lap. You will know when it's time to "turn around" and it will be music to your ears.

2. There is no dropping down in the middle of the race, but you can change distances prior to the race..

3. Everyone has the right to the inside lane, as it is the shortest distance around the track! Faster runners are responsible for changing lanes to pass. We ask that you do not "congregate" with a group of friends and create a wall in the inside section of the course. Ideally runners will be able to easily pass on the outside portion of lane one at worse in lane 2.


4. Space is limited. We try to limit the number of runners to a comfortable count.

The Track

The Haven South Campus Track is located in beautiful Venice, Florida. It is rubberized and even has lines on it (unlike our previous location), and (for better or worse) no trees growing out of the middle of it. The first two editions were held in Rotonda, Florida. While the track isn't as broken as it used to be, we can't promise you won't be when you are finished. Either way: Welcome to Florida's only track Ultra!

Course Records

We had 3 competitors break 60 Miles in 2022 in the 12 hour, which included an epic last hour showdown.
Records:
12 Hour: 65.5 Miles (Loan Vo) and Jon Kier (64.5)
6 Hour: 35 Miles (Joanne Fisher).

Aid Station/Personal Setup

Runners in the 12/6 hour race will be able to set up a table/canopy (or throw a towel on the ground, whatever) around the track for personal aid stations. Aid Stations/Canopies can be set up on the inside of the course, but will need to be a few feet off the course to allow runners to step off when accessing their aid stations. There should be plenty of room to setup! Parking is nearby but no parking on the track. We will have an aid station that will offer rotating snacks throughout the race. Expect a different food or "snack" items to be added in each hour. There will be Pizza at 1PM. Other items throughout the day can range from fruit or chips to flavr-ice or similar. While we will provide these items, please be prepared to provide for other nutritional needs (such as preferred fruits, snacks, beverages, etc) as you may or may not like the offering of certain hours.

Please bring your own ice to stay cool. Water and Electrolytes should be filled or swapped at your personal aid stations/setups if possible, thought we will have a jug of water as well.

Swag/Awards/Etc.

Race Awards will be Top 3 M/F in each race. Oh, and the person who walks away with the overall course record will win the Legend Award

Timing

Race will be timed by the good folks at Durtiming, local legends and former brokentrack participants! A few notes: The race will be chip-lapped, and there will be two independent machines reading the chips (one will be used for the live-timing, and a second used to verify if there are any discrepancies. IMPORTANT: Your watch will show much more distance than what you will officially have. Running around people, visiting the bathroom, and going to the aid station will add a lot of distance! So, please expect that your watch will be more impressive than your final official mileage. (Don't worry, everyone is in the same boat)

Event's current local time: 1:26 PM ET
