EVERGLADES ULTRAS Route Maps for 2017 are currently posted
Route maps for 2018 for each of the race distances will be posted here as printable PDF's in advance of the race. Final course layout will depend upon park conditions which can vary greatly. Trails must be accessible not only on race day but weeks in advance of the race for clearing. Uncleared sections cannot be used. Trudging through deep water is also avoided. Precise routes will be confirmed as early as can be reasonably determined, and will be promptly published. Registered runners will be directly notified and route maps will be posted on this page. While route uncertainty is a challenge for park staff and race organizers, the great size and diversity of the Fakahatchee allow many creative combinations of trails to make the runner experience fresh and interesting while exploring different segments of the park on race day.
For EVERGLADES ULTRAS, the route for each race distance will be extensively marked using primarily colored ribbon and vinyl "flags" that match the color of the runner's race bib. For example, 50-mile race flagging is blue, as is the background color of the runner's race number. Ribbons and flags will be supplemented as needed with instructional signs and directional arrows and stationed race staff. Where to run is always very clear.
