About The Race
The race takes place on Florida’s famous Waccasassa River and brings you through the heart of Florida’s back country. Sightings of deer, wild boar, alligators, and all types of snakes are a frequent occurrence for race contestants. The race covers 15 miles of twists and turns and the current rain fall can have a dramatic effect on the river, adding to the challenge.
The race starts at the Waccasassa Bridge, 6 miles west of the stop light in Bronson on State Rd 24. It finishes at US Highway 19 at the Waccasassa Bridge, 6 miles south of Otter Creek. Registration opens at 7:30am on race day on State Road 24 at the Waccasassa Bridge, and ends promptly at 9:15am. Rule Review will begin at 9:15am, and the race will start at 9:30am.:

Race contestants will experience dragging their canoe through mud, over logs, dodging branches, not to mention the challenge of the occasional rapids.
With all that in mind, survivors still come back year after year for the ultimate test of endurance while enjoying good, old-fashioned country fun and fellowship.
