For the 6th year, the PALM100 six runner 100 mile team relay race will charge along "A1A" from Deerfield Beach to Fort Lauderdale Beach to Palm Beach and back. Enjoy running “long” with friends on Saturday mornings? This event is made for you!
Returning in 2014 are the PALM100 individual ultramarathon-distance competitions. The 100 kilometer event will begin at the beach in Deerfield Beach. Runners will head north for 16 miles to the turn-around at Ocean Inlet Park--located at the Boynton Beach Inlet to the Atlantic Ocean--then run back to the finish line in Deerfield Beach where the race began.
Runners in the 50 kilometer race will begin at Deerfield Beach and head north to the turn-around at Ocean Inlet Park--located at the Boynton Beach Inlet to the Atlantic Ocean, then run back to the finish line at Deerfield Beach where the race began. This is a fast and flat course--a great venue for setting a new "PR".
All 5 events will run the last 150 feet on the white sands of Deerfield Beach finishing in front of "Oceans234" Restaurant, which will be our food sponsor for the event. You’ll be asked when you register to select one of the 5 menu choices being offered, so we can have a rough idea of what to expect race day. After the race you’re free to select what ever you wish at that moment! Any other people in your party will be able to order off the regular menu offered by "Oceans234".
Showers and bathrooms are plentiful in the area where the race will be staged. The newly renovated Fishing Pier is open to the public for $1 per person, and the view is fantastic. Parking is available in the USA parking garage located about 1.5 blocks away from the start and we have a Special Rate of $10 for 24 hours. There are 2 convenience stores [one is a 7/11] between the garage and the start as well as 7 other restaurants and bars.
Plan on bringing a beach chair and hanging out at the finish line to cheer in the rest of the runners as they cross the finish line. We’ll have a gear check area at the finish so after your race, you can jump in the ocean or shower off and change in one of the bathrooms at the start/finish area.
Running an Individual “Ultra”
Ever run a marathon?
Looking for a different running experience—with excellent bragging rights? Then the PALM100 individual races of 50 kilometers and 100 kilometers are waiting for you. Move up to the challenge of an ultramarathon. Run the barrier island between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway, from Ocean Inlet Park to Fort Lauderdale--or round trip, if you prefer--past the amazing real estate and landscaping of the Florida Gold Coast. Finish on the beach in Fort Lauderdale, with the spring break crowd helping to cheer you “home”. The 50k and 100k are fully supported, with aid stations located approximately every 3-5 miles to provide food, water, ice and electrolyte replacement. Transportation will be available to the race starting line for 50k competitors. Check out all the details at “Tips & FAQ”.
