This is a unique out and back course, run in the Everglades Conservation Area. The terrain is hard packed dirt and rock, and trail footwear is recommended, but not required.
This is a fully supported event, with several water stations along the course. There will also be Hammer Gels available at some of the stations. Post event nourishment will be provided as well.
We will have medical services on course, and at the finish area. Restroom facilities will be located at the start/finish area, but none are available on the course.
We take every precaution to keep the course clear of wildlife, but you will be in their home. Encounters with snakes and alligators are rare, but entirely possible. In most cases, they avoid the trail, because of the ATV's and golf carts we run before the participants begin.
Feel free to bring your camera, as the area is breathtakingly beautiful, especially at sunrise.
We look forward to seeing everyone there, and please email us with any questions!
Parking and Location Info

If you are coming from the east on Atlantic, head west under the Sawgrass Expressway, and towards the southbound ramp. Remain straight, and look for signs for the event.
If coming from the North on the Sawgrass, exit at Atlantic, and look for the signs on your right at the light before turning onto Atlantic Blvd.
Participants coming from the south should exit at Atlantic Blvd, make a u-turn at Lakeview Dr, and head west. You will see the signs at the Southbound on ramp. Do not turn into the green-way parking, continue down the ramp and you'll see an open gate with access to parking, and easy southbound reentry to the highway.
Parking is extremely limited at the trail head, and all designated parking is reserved for our volunteers.
