JUPITER, FL & JONATHAN DICKINSON STATE PARK
Located just south of Stuart, Florida, this park teems with wildlife in 13 natural communities, including sand pine scrub, pine flatwoods, mangroves, river swamp and the Indian River. The Loxahatchee River, Florida’s first federally designated Wild and Scenic River, runs through the park.
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. Stretching to the Atlantic Ocean, Jupiter features a delightful tropical climate and truly that “small town” appeal with big city benefits. VISIT JUPITER

RULES AND REGULATIONS:
1. NO LITTER. LEAVE NO TRACE
AUTOMATIC DISQUALIFICATION AND BANNED FROM ANY DTR RACE.
The course must be in better shape then what we found it. Littering is absolutely against our principle and will not be tolerated.
2. Stay on Course. If you get off course you must return on your own to the place where you got off and start over. I wish we didn’t have to add this to the rules as cheating is the worse thing someone can do, but if a race marshall catches a person (cheating) you will be banned from any future race that DTR hosts for life. Remember the real prize is in the memory of the achievement.
