Goals for 2020: how about the Skydive Ultra?
Looking for a race with impressive elevation exchange blended with the quickest first two miles you’ll ever revel in? Consider signing up for the Skydive Ultra, going down in Clewiston, Florida (northwest of Fort Lauderdale) on January 25-26. Runners take a 20 minute flight to 13,500 for their skydiving, which comes to 50 seconds of loose fall at 120 mph. (Then they begin working.) How’s that for a quick get started?

“What’s our race USP?”
“Erm. How about they jump out of a plane and then run 100 miles?”

You can join for 10Okay, a half-marathon, complete marathon, 50Okay, 50 miles, 100Okay or 100 miles. The path is a 7.25-mile (11.7K) grime and grass loop round the skydive touchdown box, via farmers’ fields. It’s very uncovered to the parts (i.e. the south Florida solar). There is one help station, and you’ll stash a bag at the get started/end, which you go via on each and every lap. Camping and showers are to be had on-site, and the web site could be very spectator- and family-friendly, clear of visitors. The race is chip-timed.
The skydiving phase is weather-dependent. (If the climate is deficient after which clears up, racers could also be introduced the probability to skydive in the center in their race.)
Of path, in the event you’re rooster (or you wish to have to look at others do it ahead of making an attempt it your self), you’ll join to race any distance with out the skydive.
But the place’s the a laugh in that?
