Everyone has the right to the inside lane (I use the word lane loosely here because the lane markings have long disappeared at brokentrack!) as it is the shortest distance around the track! Faster runners are responsible for changing lanes to pass. Ideally runners will be able to easily pass where lane 2 would be (if lines existed!).
THIS IS A BROKEN TRACK, LITERALLY POTHOLES EVERYWHERE. 
This race is meant to be a lot of fun! There will be a lot of people on the track, and many will be walking or pacing themselves.
So yes, you will be running around people while also dodging the potholes.
Relax and have fun. Eat all the food.

Description

Brokentrack 3
Back by Peer Pressure demands and the park's demolition date being pushed back to 2024, brokentrack returns for a 3rd edition. How many laps can you run around a 1/4 mile track in 6 hours? How about 12 hours? Pick a fixed time and knock out as many laps as you dare to. Do as much or as little as you can or want. Break some course records. It's going to be hot! It's going to be (kinda) fun.

Race Rule FAQ:
1. Direction Change: This year we will change direction every 3 hours. When there is a direction change *you must turn around and complete that next lap.

2. There is no dropping down in the middle of the race, but you can change distances prior to the race.

3. Everyone has the right to the inside lane (I use the word lane loosely here because the lane markings have long disappeared at brokentrack!) as it is the shortest distance around the track! Faster runners are responsible for changing lanes to pass. We ask that you do not "congregate" with a group of friends and create a wall in the inside section of the course. Ideally runners will be able to easily pass where lane 2 would be (if lines existed!).

4. Fun Notice: This race is meant to be a lot of fun! There will be a lot of people on the track, and many will be walking or pacing themselves. So yes, you will be running around people while also dodging the potholes. Relax and have fun. Eat all the food.

The Track
In the 1970s, the track at GC Herring was the site of ABC's World of Sports televised competitions that brought together top athletes including Walter Payton, Kyle Rote Jr., Pete Rose, OJ Simpson, and Joe Frazier to compete in sports competitions in the area, including running and biking races around this very track. Over 40 years later (and the name of the race should be taken quite literally!), the mostly-forgotten track hosted a new set of champions in 2021. This isn't your fast rubberized cold-weather track race. It's June in Florida on a track that sometimes feels like a trail and even has a little elevation.

Course Records
We had 3 competitors break 60 Miles in 2022 in the 12 hour, which included an epic last hour showdown.
Records:
12 Hour: 65.5 Miles (Loan Vo)
6 Hour: 35 Miles (Joanne Fisher).


Aid Station/Personal Setup
Runners in the 12/6 hour race will be able to set up a table/canopy (or throw a towel on the ground, whatever) around the track for personal aid stations. Aid Stations/Canopies can be set up on the inside of the course, but will need to be about a few feet off the course to allow runners to step off when accessing their aid stations. There should be plenty of room to setup! Last year, most people set up on the outside of the course. If you want to have quick access to your car, you must use the outside, you cannot park in the track. We will have a supplemental aid station that will offer a rotating snack throughout the race. Expect a different food or "snack" item each hour. There will be Pizza at 1PM. Other items throughout the day can range from fruit or chips to flavr-ice or similar. We will have a sign at the station to alert you of the current offering, and all snacks will be grab-go style not hands into the dish!) While we will provide these supplemental items, please be prepared to provide for other nutritional needs (such as fruits, snacks, beverages, etc) as you may or may not like the offering of certain hours.

Please bring your own ice to stay cool. Water and Electrolytes should be filled or swapped at your personal aid stations/setups if possible.

 

Swag/Awards/Etc.
Soft shirt
- Finisher medals for all runners who complete at least one lap of 1/4Mile
-Lots of food, pizza at the conclusion of the 6 hour/midway of the 12 hour, and icee pops, at a rotating aid station for the first 6 hours.
- Bathrooms on site, steps from the course! .
Race Awards will be Top 3 M/F in each race.

5K TIMED BY DURTI RUNNERS 
ULTRA Timing
Race will be timed by the good folks at Trailhead Ultras, timers of such classics as Long Haul 100 and Save the Daylight. A few notes: The race will be chip-lapped, and there will be two independent machines reading the chips (one will be used for the live-timing, and a second used to verify if there are any discrepancies. IMPORTANT: Your watch will show much more distance than what you will officially have. Running around people, visiting the bathroom, and going to the aid station will add a lot of distance! So, please expect that your watch will be more impressive than your final official mileage. (Don't worry, everyone is in the same boat)
