Event Information

Icarus Florida UltraFest Symbolizing high flying ambition, the myth of Icarus warns us against complacency and hubris, and similarly, ultrarunning symbolizes the human drive for empowerment and warns us against heeding our own limitations, self doubt, and fears. To those in the sport, ultrarunning is not only a way to be better, but also to know thyself, and know what better means. To those on the outside of the sport, ultrarunning is the myth that truly heroic things are not achieved by mere mortals, but only by heroes. Icarus Florida UltraFest was organized with the idea that truly heroic things can be achieved by all of us -- if we are willing to put in the time, energy and effort demanded by the task. Offering a truly epic event, the Icarus Florida UltraFest is a 6 day running event with not just a 6 day race, but 12 additional races -- everything from 3 hour races to 24 hour races -- interspersed throughout the 6 days. What this means for seasoned ultra runners and new runners alike is that the Icarus Florida UltraFest is not just a place to test your limits, but to abandon them.
