Race Schedule & Information:
All runners must read and sign the Florida Wildlife Commission Release and Waiver in order to run the Wild Florida 120. If we do not have your signed release, you will not be allowed to participate in the race.
Click Here to access the Release and Waiver. Read it, print it, sign it, and bring the signed copy with you.
Bring all mandatory gear and drop bags to packet pickup!
Aid stations will have water, Coke, Gatorade, peanut butter and jelly, salt, cookies etc. There will be hot food at every other aid station. Look for cheese tortillas, bacon, broth, hamburgers, and pizza slices.
If you will need ANYTHING besides water and Gatorade between aid stations, then grab it from the aid station, and put it in your pack.
The course follows the Florida Trail. The Wild Florida 120 will use approximately 107 miles of the Florida Trail. The Florida Trail is well marked with VERTICAL ORANGE RECTANGLE blazes. When you are on the Florida Trail there will be NO additional flagging or markers.
It is your responsibility to not get lost. The Florida Trail sometimes takes random 90 and 180 degree turns.
Check the Guthook Map App to verify you are on course. (See below on mandatory gear). The Florida Trail is infrequently traveled but is well maintained. You must navigate using the trail blazes and your Guthook Map App! The Guthook App is your friend. Look ahead on the map to see when a major turn is coming up.
There are two sections of the race where you will divert off the Florida Trail. On those sections we will have course markings, flagging, and signs.

If you are riding the shuttle, bring your drop bag to the shuttle, otherwise bring to the start.
YOU MUST clearly mark drop bags with your name, bib number, and the LOCATION(S) where you want your drop bags.
We will do our best to get the drop bags back to the finish in time for you get your bag. In some cases the aid stations may not close before you finish. You may have to travel back to the aid station and pick up your drop bag. We do not mail drop bags back to the owner!
