Race For Free

The first 50 team captains to complete their team (all team members registered) will have their personal race entry refunded to them. That’s a savings of at least $125, which can be shared with your teammates, used to stock up on race supplies, or saved for the finish line celebration!

Register Your Team

STEP 1: In order to create a new team, the team captain must first choose which race category to run in, at the start of the registration process.

Choose from these Race Categories:

Regular Relay
  • Co-Ed Relay Teams
  • Women’s Relay Teams
  • Men’s Relay Teams
Ultra Distance Relay
  • Co-Ed Relay Teams
  • Women’s Relay Teams
  • Men’s Relay Teams

STEP 2: Once you’ve selected the correct Race Category and entered your personal information, you will be asked if you’d like to “Create a New Team” or “Join an Existing Team”.  Once you’ve selected “Create a New Team”, you will be asked to choose a team name.  If your team is available, you’ll be able to continue forward with your registration. If you’re team name has already been chosen, you’ll need to enter a new team name. Don’t forget!  Style points matter when it comes to best team names!

Join an Existing Team

Once your team Team Captain has completed his or her registration, you’ll be able to register and join that team.  The first step is to select the correct Race Category as listed above.

During the Registration process, you will be asked if you’d like to “Create a New Team” or “Join an Existing Team”.  Select “Join an Existing Team” and enter the Team Name. You must know the correct spelling of the Team Name in order to correctly join that team.

Relay teams are limited to 12 runners per team. Ultra Relay Teams are limited to 6 runners per team.

You will not be able to add additional team members once you have completed your team.  If you need to transfer an entry from one runner to another, please contact us via email at info@genesisadventures.com.

Important Deadlines

In order to guarantee your team’s spot in the race, all team members MUST BE registered within 60 days of creating your team. If the event sells out prior to having all of your team members registered, we can not guarantee that your team will have a space.

Epic Finish Line Announced!

Since we last updated you with our Start Line venue a couple of weeks back, we’ve received tons of questions about the location of the Florida C2C Finish line.

We’re thrilled to announce that we have secured the beautiful Fred Howard Beach Park in Tarpon Springs as our Finish Line festival area!

Situated on the Gulf of Mexico, Fred Howard Beach is known for its pristine white sandy beaches and spectacular sunsets.  Finishing at the end of a one mile causeway, surrounded by the Gulf on both sides, you’ll very quickly realize why we chose this spot to end your epic journey across Florida.  The only difficult choice will be whether or not your entire team should run the last mile together.

Now you know where you’ll be starting and finishing! Get signed up before prices increase and stay tuned for more information on the exact course route in the coming weeks!


 

 

Starting Location Announced!

We’ve just locked down a beautiful location for our Start Line Festival area!

The first ever Florida Coast 2 Coast Relay will kick off from beautiful Sand Point Park in Titusville.

Known for its amazing sunrises and view of the Max Brewer Bridge, Sand Point Park provides the perfect backdrop to get your team ready for 200+ miles of running bliss.

We’re working diligently to finalize the course route, and we’ll be announcing the epic finish line location soon. Until then, keep training!
