The course is drop-dead gorgeous! Highlights include:
Painted in the same hue as the Golden Gate Bridge, the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse is the tallest lighthouse in Florida (175 feet) and one of the tallest in the entire country.
When you do hop on the beach for one last time at Mile 98, you are now actually on the stretch of sand that used to host the old Daytona National Races that were the precursors for today's Daytona 500!
Great views along the way, especially views of the ocean.
From the eclectic feel of Jacksonville and Neptune Beaches, through the upscale communities of Ponte Vedra / Palm Valley, and into America's First City, St. Augustine, the first 35 miles of the DAYTONA 100 offers unparalleled views of the ocean, multi-million dollar estates, and a large dose of history.
The "middle section" of the course -- from St. Augustine to Beverly Beach -- features some true laid-back "Florida" beach towns, including St. Augustine Beach and the beaches of the Palm Coast. It also features the luxe community of Hammock Beach.
Finally, the last 33-34 miles of the course pass you through Flagler Beach and Ormond Beach on your way down to the finish. Once you reach Daytona Beach Shores (Mile 88.5), you will run the next 4.5 miles on the beach itself, exiting it briefly in Ponce Inlet for one last aid station, as well as to circle the world-famous Ponce Inlet Lighthouse.
You will then return to the beach at Mile 98, and -- for the first time in the entire race -- actually run north for the final two miles. You will also actually be on the section of beach where the great Daytona car races took place decades ago.
The race finishes in dramatic fashion right on the beach at the very spot where the old Daytona auto races exited the beach onto Atlantic Avenue: the "north turn."
The 50 mile follows the second half of the 100 mile race.
