Description


The Winter Solstice Run is an all-day ultra-run, starting at sunrise, continuing 40 miles along the beaches, around the many lakes of South Walton, and through Florida state forests until sunset. This is all about fun, adventure and camaraderie – it’s not a race! It also has served as training for Run Across Ethiopia, Run Across Palestine and most recently Run Across Congo participants. The annual runs have occurred during both the summer and winter solstices, ranging from 30-40 miles during the shortest days and shortest nights of the year. For some this will be the first of their Solstice Runs, for others it may be their 7th! This will be one of the most amazing life experiences you have, so join us!

The Run offers four options:

  • 40 miles – The whole shebang. Start at sunrise and finish at sunset!
  • 20 miles – Half-Solstice option: Run the last 20 miles!
  • Relay – You and three others each run a 10 mile leg (4 per team)!
  • The First 10 – Run the last 10 miles with the team!

How much does it cost?

There’s not a registration fee for The Winter Solstice Run. Instead participating runners are asked to solicit pledges from friends and family to support Project Congo – a goal of $1,000 per runner, but all contributions are welcome. Funds will go directly to OTG’s Project Congo supporting women’s empowerment programs in the eastern region of the DRC.
