Angry Tortoise 25K/50K
The Angry Tortoise 25k/50k trail run is held in the beautiful flatwoods of Cary State Forest, located on the outskirts of Jacksonville. This race is a great introduction to both ultra and trail running as it offers well-supported aid stations, a flat course on forest roads, and ample time to finish (8 hours!). This is a 2-lap course for the 50k, with 4 legs ranging from 3.2 to 5.3 miles, radiating out from a central aid station. The 25k is just one lap. This is run 100% on dirt forest service roads, though they are often quite rutted. If it's been a wet winter, you'll be running through a bit of mud and water.
