The 10th annual KEYS100 will be held the weekend of Saturday and Sunday, May 20 and 21, 2017. The event is a series of point-to-point races, beginning in Key Largo—or Marathon for the 50 mile race and Big Pine Key for the 50 kilometer race--and ending in Key West on the Atlantic Ocean at Higgs Beach. KEYS100 also promotes charitable fundraising for "The Cancer Foundation of the Florida Keys" in support of their educational work with prostate and other cancers, free screenings and direct support of cancer patients and their families throughout the Keys. Individual runners and teams are invited to earn a refund of their full race entry fee by raising funds for the "Foundation". (Visit the "Registration" page for details.) The KEYS100 includes four distinct competitions: individual races of 100 miles, 50 miles and 50 kilometers, and our original Florida Keys six runner 100 mile team relay race. In the individual races, runners may compete with a support crew or without. Eleven (11) full aid stations serve all individual runners; these are located at approximately ten (10) mile intervals. Coolers with ice and water are positioned at approximately five (5) mile intervals. People competing without a crew may place drop bags with personal gear at aid stations along the route. THE FOLLOWING RUNNER LIMITS WILL APPLY FOR 2017: 250 IN THE INDIVIDUAL 100 MILE RACE; 250 IN THE 50 MILE RACE; 200 IN THE 50 KILOMETER RACE; 150 TOTAL TEAMS, INCLUDING MILITARY. Register now; don't be left out next May!
