A little over four years ago, we launched the LONG
HAUL 100 as a benefit race to support an agricultural
initiative in Haiti. Together, our runners, families
and friends, raised approximately $50k that went
directly to the work on the ground in that community.
We created a great, and growing race that has made a
difference in Haiti.
Proceeds from the 2016 Long Haul will support The Florida Center for Early Childhood. The Florida Center for Early Childhood is a nationally accredited nonprofit organization providing an array of comprehensive therapeutic services, clinical interventions, prevention and early education programming for children and families.
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.
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. 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
