Description:

The Tick is a point to point 50 mile single track trail race with 7.41 bonus miles (*) thrown in for good measure that follows the Florida National Scenic Trail from Alexander Springs State Park to the far end of the Rodman Reservoir Dam. * (bonus miles are not optional)

There isn’t sufficient water supplies along the route to run this event unaided but there are ample places to meet your mandatory crews along the way. The longest distance between stops is around 10.5 miles

This wilderness race will take you into the heart of the Ocala National Forest passing along many diverse ecosystems, running past lakes, prairies and marshes as well as through tall growth pine and hardwood forests. It’s not uncommon to see Deer, Bobcats, Bears, Hawks, Eagles, Scrub Jays and other animals along the route (other animals include squirrels turtles rabbits and mice just to name a few)(oh saw a few snakes too).
