We strongly believe that small seeds grow into mighty trees, hence why we joined all distances and both races into one trail-packed weekend.

The inspiration from the community of runners involved in this event is contagious and their love for trails is what drives us to make every year better.

Welcome to the Dunes!
The name Dunes 100 is inspired by the last imperial eco-system, The Scrubs with its endless rolling white sugar sand. This course will take you on a journey from Pine Flatwoods to the scrubs where you will go face to face with the infamous “Dunes of Heaven” and Dunes of Hell”.
The first 5 miles you will go through pine flatwoods with hard packed dirt some roots and sand. You will cross two wooden bridges – Kitching Creek South and North, followed by two miles through wetland prairie with another bridge crossing and you arrive into the “Scrubs” imperial eco-system.
Here, you will tackle seven miles through white sand dunes that will make you feel like you are going backward while rolling up and down the relentless Dunes of Heaven and Dunes of Hell.
For as much as the course tortures you, we promise to be nice to you at the finish line. We love to cater our runners with fresh cold organic coconut waiting for you, or if you prefer some stronger hydration we have some craft beer and burgers firing on the grill and other refreshments, for a complete recovery party.
Experience scenic overlooks, creek crossings, and wildlife in 13 natural communities.
100-MILERS: 3 LOOPS OF 33.3 MILES
50-MILERS: 2 LOOPS OF 25 MILES
RELAY 1 LOOP OF 25M EACH (4X)
Most of the course runs on beautiful single track trails winding throughout this wild and scenic park, you’ll encounter the famous Dunes of Heaven (13.1, 50K, 50 mile and 100 mile) and Dunes of Hell (50K, 50 Miler, and 100 Miler).
Yep Dunes of Hell!! Together with the Dunes of Heaven, the course now consists of the Dunes of Hell, steep rolling dunes of sugar sand, that will make your legs melt.

The course must be in better shape than how we found it. Littering is absolutely against our principle and will not be tolerated.

Remember, the real prize is in the memory of the achievement.

Stretching to the Atlantic Ocean, Jupiter features a delightful tropical climate and truly that “small town” appeal with big city benefits.
Jupiter is rich in history: the earliest known records of the Jupiter Inlet date as far back as 1565. Jupiter’s most identifiable landmark, Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse, was erected in the 1800s. The stately red brick lighthouse continues to stand, ranging 105 feet into the sky, atop a 46-foot hill on the north shore of the Jupiter Inlet.
