Details

The Sea to Sea Expedition Race across Florida is an adventure racing event that takes participants on a multi-day journey from the Gulf of Mexico on the west coast of Florida to the Atlantic Ocean on the east coast. The race covers a distance of over 300 miles and includes a variety of challenging activities, such as trekking, mountain biking, paddling, and orienteering.

Teams of two to four members, or solos, compete in the race, and they must navigate the course using only a map and compass. The race is not marked, so participants must rely on their navigational skills to find their way through the course.

The race is held the last week of February when temperatures in Florida are relatively mild. However, participants still face various challenges, including heat or cold, humidity, and the potential for severe weather.

The Sea to Sea Expedition Race is known for its rugged and diverse terrain, which includes swamps, forests, beaches, and urban areas. Participants must be prepared to handle a range of conditions and challenges, from navigating through dense foliage to paddling through choppy seas.

The Sea to Sea Expedition Race is a true test of endurance, navigation skills, and teamwork. Participants must work together to overcome obstacles and complete the course, and they must be prepared to push themselves to their limits in order to succeed. The race is a unique and challenging adventure that offers participants the opportunity to explore some of the most beautiful and diverse landscapes in Florida while testing their physical and mental limits.

Race Tips

Race tips from the race director. Navigation will be very straightforward; however, get familiar with using a TOPO map. There will be no plotting UTM during this year's race; however, there is an O-Relay during the race so make sure at least two team members can navigate alone. All information forms and maps are waterproof. Train mostly on your mountain bikes before the race. Be prepared for any type of weather, late February in Florida has been in the low 30's at night to highs in the 80's during the day. Winter in Florida is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're going to get.
