Keys 100 Ultramarathon
The 9th annual KEYS100 will be held the weekend of Saturday and Sunday, May 21 and 22, 2016. The race is a point-to-point event beginning in Key Largo--Marathon, for the 50 mile race and Big Pine Key for the 50 Km race--and ending in Key West on the Atlantic Ocean at Higgs Beach. KEYS100 also promotes charitable fundraising for "The Cancer Foundation of the Florida Keys" in support of their educational work with prostate and other cancers, free screenings and direct support of cancer patients and their families in the Keys. Individual runners and teams are invited to earn a refund of their full race entry fee by raising funds for the "Foundation". (Visit the "Registration" page for details.)
The KEYS100 includes four distinct competitions: individual races of 100 miles, 50 miles and 50 kilometers, and our original Florida Keys six runner 100 mile team relay race. In the individual races, runners may compete with a support crew or without. Eleven (11) full aid stations serve all individual runners; these are located at approximately ten (10) mile intervals. Coolers with ice and water are positioned at approximately five (5) mile intervals. People competing without a crew in the 100-miler may place drop bags with personal gear at five (5) different support stations along the route, at two (2) stations for the 50 mile race and at one aid station (MM20) for the 50 kilometer race. Nearly 1,200 people competed in the 2015 KEYS100.
