Cancelled due to COVID-19

New Date: TBD

Unfortunately, this race has been cancelled due to COVID-19, as the park manager would not grant a permit for a race. Registered participants will be emailed with further instructions.

Here Are Your Options:

We will transfer your registration to the new event date in 2021 once it is set, and look forward to having you join us. Thanks for your patience! 

Virtual races happen all the time, and allow you to join the fun without the crowds. You simply run the distance on your own, and report your results - we’ll send you instructions.

We are currently (tentatively) scheduled to be back in Orlando in October, and are planning to be back multiple times in 2021, and we have events in Ocala and in other states. This transfer is good for up to two years, so no need to decide right now.

Description

COVID-19 UPDATE 7/14/2020
Per the park, we are not officially permitted just yet, as they are taking things week by week. However, we also have not been cancelled yet. If the park allows us to have a race, we WILL have a race! Also, per the park, we are currently under a limit of 50 total participants (including volunteers and staff.) So, once the race fills up, we will start a wait list for people who would like to get in.

Runners and volunteers must be willing to submit to a temperature check (non-invasive, for those of you who know about our "internal thermometer of doom") and pre-screening questions. Volunteers and crew will be required to wear masks. Runners can wear masks if they'd like.

We have plenty of hand sanitizer and this park has restrooms with running water and soap. We now spread out our aid station and have made adjustments to how we put out food and drinks to allow for social distancing. We have put on two races in June and July and have adjusted well and know we are capable of doing this!

For anyone who is not feeling well or is not comfortable participating, the deferral option is currently open. Simply log in to Runsignup, click on the race under your personal account, and click on manage registration. You are welcome to defer to next year (the default option) or your deferral can be turned into a transfer to any race of ours for up to two years. We are also happy to turn your entry into a virtual race if you'd like.

Again, we are not currently OFFICIALLY a go for this race yet; as soon as we are given clearance from the park (which we expect to receive hopefully by the first of August) we will update this site and send out an email!

------------------------------

What's better than running by yourself? Running with a bunch of crazy fun people, that's what! There's a major lack of races in Florida in the summer, and that's because, well, it's toasty outside. Lucky for you, the Awesomesauce crew is really really good at this taking care of runners in the heat thing, so we've got your back while you tackle whatever distance you choose.

The course is basically completely flat, on a paved path. We're running in one mile out-and-back laps, so we can keep you close to the things that keep you cool. Expect unlimited ice, an inflatable kiddie pool full of ice juuuuust in case things need to be cooled off quickly, dairy-free smoothies - yes, WHILE you're running, pickle juice slushies - yes, WHILE you're running - and more! 

AND we have the luxury of exactly ZERO port-o-potties. Yep, you read that right, toilets that flush and sinks with running water and soap. Is this a runner's dream or what?

You will pass the start/finish/aid station area multiple times throughout the race. This means you're welcome to leave a drop bag to access your own personal goodies during your run. This is also a good place to reapply sunscreen, address any potential issues such as blisters, etc.

Our races are super low-key and non-competitive; we'd prefer to race you vs. you, not you vs. anyone else. The only award we give out is for the person who perseveres the longest - the Super Sloth! There is a 4 hour time limit for all distances.

Your registration fee includes entry into the race distance of your choosing, race swag, finisher medal for all distances, and our usual aid station setup including Gatorade, water, Gu, and snacks and post-race food.

Shirts are NOT included in your race fee. We do give out race swag, it just won't be a shirt! As is tradition with this race, shirts, tank tops, hoodies, and other swag will be available for purchase during registration and on race day.

As with any other race put on by any other company, registration fees and add-on fees are final and are not refundable or transferable for any reason. Prices are subject to change. The races will go on rain, snow (hahahaha!), or shine. If there's lightning, we delay if we can. We prefer to keep you safe, and we make every effort NOT to cancel for weather, but sometimes Ma Nature is stronger than us.
