WHAT IS THE LONG HAUL ABOUT?

100 PERCENT

PRAXIS international

TREMENDOUS NEED

Haiti was devastated by a 7.0 magnitude earthquake on January 12, 2010 leaving the people of the western hemisphere’s poorest country in unimaginable hardship.

The race benefits Praxis International, a grassroots organization founded by three Tampa Bay Area families striving to make a difference in Haiti.  So, whether you are running to beat your personal best or wanting to be a part of something that is bigger, YOU can run knowing that 100% of the proceeds and any money you raise through fundraising (should you choose to do so) will make an EXTREME difference in the lives of those living in Haiti..

LONG HAUL ULTRA EVENTS

The primary events of the Long Haul are the two ultra events: the 100 kilometer and the 100 mile individual events.  The race takes place on the trails of the Cypress Creek Preserve in Wesley Chapel, Florida (Tampa Area).  The course is a 20 mile out and back on mostly wooded double track trails that is repeated until the race mileage is reached.  For more information on the ultra events, including race rules, course description, and registration, click here.

LONG HAUL FUN RUNS

Not everyone is cut out for running ultras, we know that, so we've created some other events so you can participate and help us raise additional funds for Haiti. The 100 Furlong (12.5 miles) is a popular event for all kinds of runners or walkers and  there is both a day and night version.  In addition, the final mile is an event where individuals can run 99 miles prior to the event and run their 'final mile' on race day.  The kids 100 yard dash makes the Long Haul an event for all ages!  For more information on the Fun Runs, including race rules, course description, and registration, click here.
