Join us for our sixth annual run in the woods. You can choose from 26.2, 13.1 or 6.55 miles of beautiful Florida woods running! With a mix of pavement (just a little), forest roads, wide and single track trail, this run has it all--beautiful canopied forest roads, riverbank single track, and fast, flat woods running. Hillsborough River State Park--one of the state's oldest--provides great facilities for an awesome start/finish area.

Back for 2017: earlier start times, five-year age groups and awards will be three deep in each age group!

Choose how you DARE GREATLY:
MARATHON (26.2 MILES)
  • Start Time: 7:15 am
    Course:
    This run starts and finishes in Hillsborough River State Park. After two laps of the paved park loop road, the run turns onto the Wetlands Restoration Trail, then the Old Fort King Trail to Dead River Road. At Dead River Road, racers turn south on this canopied park road. Where the road dead ends at the Hillsborough River, racers turn north on single-track trail until they run again into the Wetlands Restoration Trail. At the Old Fort King Trail (and aid station), marathoners will turn right and start their second of 4 laps. After the 4th lap, runners re-trace their steps to the paved park road, turn left and make their way to the start/finish line.

    While this run mixes a very little bit of pavement with forest roads, it also has a significant portion on trails--expect roots and ruts, mud and sand and rocks!

       • $70 until October 11, 2017

    Trail Run Times:  
    • Do not expect your road running times to translate to trail running.
    • For example, your time for the Trail 10-Miler might be equivalent to your fast half marathon time.
    • Because of uneven terrain, softer surfaces, tight, twisty single track trails and hills, expect your times to be slower.
    • Plan your hydration and nutrition needs based on being on the course longer than you would be if it were a road race.

      Camping at Hillsborough River State Park
      Hillsborough River offers RV and tent camping with electric on most of the campsites in this 112 site campground. Each site is equipped with water, a fire ring and picnic table. Each loop has restrooms with hot showers and laundry facilities.
