The Habanero Hundred is a UTMB qualifier!This race is designed to put you in an extreme situation both physically and mentally but with many comforts that you don't normally get with a big loop 100. The relay will also allow you to run with a team, friends and family to complete a monumental task.The course is small on purpose so that you are never 3.0 miles away from aid. that means if you are walking an hour from one to the next. this allows you to ICE up each aid station and keep as cool as possible.The noon start seems really mean is meant to get you in the sun while you are fresh and then get into the night while you had a good nights sleep. So you essentially won't be at 18 hours in the race and a zombie walking at midnight. You will only be 12 hours in and should be looking forward to really running hard when the sun is setting.The race features 100 Miler, 100K, 50K, 100M (5 Per Team), 100K (5 Per Team).
The 6.3 mile loop is a lollipop loop with a mix of terrains along the 260 ft per loop of up and down. The trails are partially covered with most of the trail in open spaces.
