Description

Trail races of 50 miles, 50 kilometers (31 miles) and 25 kilometers (15.6 miles) right through the Western Everglades. Runners are fully supported with aid stations and roving park rangers throughout the course.  More than 50 miles of trails are cleared each year in order for this race to happen.  Experience this spectacular and unique venue along old logging "trams"--trails raised above the cypress swamp lowlands--and through expansive grassland prairies, tropical hardwood hammocks and pine rock lands.  The location is the Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park, the largest state park in Florida, featuring the greatest variety of orchids and bromeliads on the continent and the exotic animal life of this unique American treasure.
