Haiti was devastated by a 7.0 magnitude earthquake on
January 12, 2010 leaving the people of the western
hemisphere’s poorest country in unimaginable hardship.
The race benefits Praxis International, a grassroots organization founded by three Tampa Bay Area families striving to make a difference in Haiti. So, whether you are running to beat your personal best or wanting to be a part of something that is bigger, YOU can run knowing that 100% of the proceeds and any money you raise through fundraising (should you choose to do so) will make an EXTREME difference in the lives of those living in Haiti..
The primary events of the Long Haul are the two
ultra events: the 100 kilometer and the 100 mile
individual events. The race takes place on
the trails of the Cypress Creek Preserve in Wesley
Chapel, Florida (Tampa Area). The course is
a 20 mile out and back on mostly wooded double
track trails that is repeated until the race
mileage is reached. For more information on
the ultra events, including race rules, course
description, and registration, click here.
Not everyone is cut out for running ultras, we
know that, so we've created some other events so
you can participate and help us raise additional
funds for Haiti. The 100 Furlong (12.5 miles) is a
popular event for all kinds of runners or walkers
and there is both a day and night
version. In addition, the final mile is an
event where individuals can run 99 miles prior to
the event and run their 'final mile' on race
day. The kids 100 yard dash makes the Long
Haul an event for all ages! For more
