Description: Participants run a 4.167-mile loop every hour, and are eliminated if they fail to complete a loop in an hour. The path of the loop is on trails during the day and along a dirt road after dark (There is no pavement on either course). The distance of each loop is equal to 100 divided by 24, so that a competitor runs 100 miles for a full day of competition. There is no predefined finish. The winner is the competitor who completes a loop that no other competitors complete. If no competitor outlasts every other competitor, there is no winner. There will be a maximum of 10'x10' area for each runner to set up "base camp" at the start/finish. There will be no aid stations on course and NO AID outside of the start/finish area. There will be bathrooms and water available at the start/finish. Maybe some ice. Maybe. Otherwise, you're on your own. Oh, you will get a whistle at 3, 2, and 1 minute remining before the start of each "yard" (as the loops have come to be known). There will be shirts. No other swag, aside from the Last Person Standing who will get a special trophy to commemorate their achievement. San Felasco Hammock Preserve State Park is unique and beautiful. As the Friends of San Felasco website states, "San Felasco Hammock was purchased under Florida’s Environmentally Endangered Lands Program in 1974 due to its diversity of plants and geological features. Today at over 7,000 acres, it is one of the largest protected contiguous stands of mesic hammock in Florida." (http://www.sanfelasco.org/)
