Based on recent updates from Florida State Parks and DEP, The DTR DUNES Endurance Challenge (10K, 13.1, 50K, 50M and 100 M) is going to be postponed due to COVID-19. As race director, it’s very disappointing for us because the event is something we put hard work into this entire year and we know how hard runners have trained for our race. We know this is impacting everyone all around the world. We know the decisions made by DEP are in the publics’ best interest.
The 8th annual DTR Endurance Challenge and Dunes 100 are combining forces to bring you an adventurous weekend in the grueling trails of Jonathan Dickinson State Park. “The Real Florida”.
Tackle the trails of an imperial eco-system of natural rolling sand dunes with beautiful views of the scrubs and the Florida inter-coastal on April 25 and 26, 2020.
Choose from 10K all the way to 100M and experience the beautiful, yet grueling trails of this Florida state park.
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.

IMPORTANT LEGAL ISSUES
All racers, crew members and volunteers must sign the Accident Waiver and Release of Liability / Release of Name and Illness . All athletes racing must complete the full form before race day. LEAVE NO TRACE (unlike road races we do not permit that you throw anything on the floor) please throw your trash in aid station area only. If race official catches you throwing garbage in other zones this will give you an automatic DNF.
We strongly believe that small seeds grow into mighty trees. That is why we joined all distances and both races into one trail-packed weekend.
Throughout the years we have seen many runners get inspired by seeing ultra-marathons finish. It’s not everyday that we get front row seats to seeing people achieve something that seems so unreal and impossible. We see the how humble and encouraging each participant is with each other, mile after mile. 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.
Located just south of Stuart, Florida, this park teems with wildlife in 13 natural communities, including sand pine scrub, pine flat woods, mangroves, river swamp and the Indian River.
The Loxahatchee River, Florida’s first federally designated Wild and Scenic River, runs through the park.

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.
