(USATF Course Certification #FL15009EBM)
There is no other race like it in the world!
At 7:30 am on April 9, 2017, hundreds of racers will head north through the front gate of St. Lucie County Fairgrounds, run or walk three stories up a wide circular pedestrian ramp, enjoying panoramic views of Florida’s citrus fields as they cross an aerial sidewalk (called “the bridge to nowhere” by locals), and circle back down a ramp to the Okeechobee Bike Path on the other side.
The course turns north again along South Header Canal Road before it turns east in to Save the Chimps – the world’s largest sanctuary for rescued chimpanzees – at mile 4.
After a completing a 1-1/2 mile lap around the Sanctuary, racers return to St. Lucie County Fairgrounds and cross the finish to the cheers of supporters.
