A 120 mile point to point course in Florida where you only repeat about 7.5 miles total.
Finally a race of EPIC proportions in Florida... No loops and not an out n back course!!!
What is the point of this race?
The point of this race is to see and experience the WILD side of Florida, The off the beaten track, and the places you didn’t know existed. The beauty is unparalleled and the wildlife is right there with it. You will likely see 100+ types of animals during the race most of them birds. You will get an epic sunset, sunrise and likely a sunset again for most of you.
120 miles with less than 1000 ft of gain but more scenery and wildlife than likely any other race in North America. This is the WILD FLORIDA that Ponce De Leon saw. From Savannas to Dry Prairie to cypress swamps on elevated board walks to pine flats this course has it all! You will cross at night through the only Dark Sky designated state park in Florida.
The race while on paper is flat and looks easy. It is far from it. You’ll experience unparalleled sunrises and a sunset. You’ll run through swamps, prairies, palms and things you didn’t know existed.
This is a race where we don’t hold your hand. There is not an aid station every 4 miles. You will need a pack and the correct gear. You have 7-15 miles between aid stations. You will run alone for long sections of this course. Parts of this course are extremely fast, other parts will be extremely technical and you’ll come to a crawl.
Did you know the highest concentration of bald eagles in the lower 48 is in Florida right where our course is?
We will cover approximately 105 miles on the Florida National Scenic Trail. No other race has uses a single step of our course. You will have single track, double track, dirt roads and about 2 miles of paved roads. To make this race possible we cross 5 WMAs, a state park, 5 counties and multiple sections of private private property.
The course will be lightly marked with flagging as the route is blazed for the first 100 plus miles as you are on the Florida Trail.
