Announcing the 3rd Annual "Deer Dodge 50" Ultramarathon with distances of both 50 Miles and 50K. Hosted at Blackwater River State Forest Bear Lake Recreation Area on December 9, 2017, in Milton, Florida. Presented by Gulf Coast Ultras. The Deer Dodge 50 takes place on several "Florida Trail" hiking trails: the Juniper Creek Trail, the Jackson Red Ground Trail, and the Hutton Trail with a connector trail to Bear Lake. These scenic trails take you along the gently rolling hills of the Blackwater River State Forest in Northwest Florida. Mostly surrounded in longleaf pines and wiregrass, the Jackson Red Ground Trail is a historic route used by General Andrew Jackson and his 1,200 troops in 1818 as they marched towards Pensacola and was one of the earliest trade routes of Native Americans and settlers in Florida. While on the Juniper Creek Trail, you remain within sight of the Blackwater River and creek for quite a distance with spectacular views from the bluffs at Red Rocks. Keep your eyes open because you'll surely run into some cool wildlife along the way. This is an out and back course with low elevation change. Runners will traverse mostly single track trails with roots and covered creek crossings rating it a low to medium on the technical scale. Want to run further? Try out our Cottonmouth 100 one month earlier in November.
