RACE ACROSS THE ISLANDS OF THE FLORIDA KEYS!
Talk about spectacular! This Southernmost part of the United States is a chain of islands surrounded by the turquoise waters of the Atlantic Ocean and Florida Bay/Gulf of Mexico. Picturesque and laid-back, the scene is a sub-tropical paradise ending in the City of Key West, just 90 miles from Cuba. The Keys, known locally as “The Conch Republic”, feature great fishing, kayaking, snorkeling and diving, with hotels, resorts, B&B's and cuisine and cocktails to fit every budget. There is entertainment to fit every taste, important history and a unique culture, sunsets that will keep you spellbound, special events going on throughout the year including the KEYS100, of course, and you don't need a passport to visit here! So, what are you waiting for? We've saved a space for you!

THE 2017 RACES
The 10th annual KEYS100 will be held the weekend of Saturday and Sunday, May 20 and 21, 2017. The event is a series of point-to-point races, beginning in Key Largo—or Marathon for the 50 mile race and Big Pine Key for the 50 kilometer 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 throughout 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 may place drop bags with personal gear at aid stations along the route. THE FOLLOWING RUNNER LIMITS WILL APPLY FOR 2017: 250 IN THE INDIVIDUAL 100 MILE RACE; 250 IN THE 50 MILE RACE; 200 IN THE 50 KILOMETER RACE; 150 TOTAL TEAMS, INCLUDING MILITARY. Register now; don't be left out next May! Register now; don't be left out in 2017!

EVER RUN A MARATHON?
Looking for something different—with excellent bragging rights? Move up to the challenge of an ultramarathon. Run from Key Largo or Marathon City or Big Pine Key to Key West, through the amazing scenery and colors of the Florida Keys.
EVER RUN A HALF-MARATHON OR 10K?
Then the KEYS100 Relay Race is perfect for you—and five of your running friends! Our relay format is a lot of fun, uniquely flexible and easy to organize. You and your mates decide your own race strategy: how many legs each team member will run and how long each segment will be, subject only to swapping runners at allowable locations. (These do not have to be the same for all teammates.) You may even make changes to your race plan during the race. Then there is the artistic side—naming your team, decorating your team vehicle, insulting the competition… Unique, Keys-focused awards, too! Compete in a 100 mile race without running the entire distance yourself: the KEYS100 Team Relay.
