Latest Updates

From the comments I've heard from many runners it appears we saved the best for my last! Nothing like slogging through standing water, sliding on "slippery than snot" mud, running in a torrential downpour while navigating the trails of the course you love to hate, to really make a trail runner happy! Check out the photo and video links on our Photo Page if you want to relive the fun.

It's been a fun, challenging and rewarding 13 years. I'm going to miss seeing your wet, muddy, (and sometimes bloody,) exhausted and smiling faces crossing the finish line. Even though I'm retiring from being the Race Director of the RRR, you might see me on the other side of the starting line on a future RRR. RunFlorida Run Shop and the Fort Myers Track Club assure me that the RRR will continue.

The River, Roots & Ruts is a great opportunity to experience Florida trail running at its finest. It is suited for experienced trail runners and novices.

While not a course for a PR, it will go down in your log book as a special run. The main event is a 13.1 mile half marathon utilizing both sides of the park: the wide nature trails on the south side and the single lane mountain bike trails on the north side.

For those in training for a race or just off one, or for those that may want to experience a little less nature we have a 2 person half marathon relay, over the same course. And for those that feel that 3.2 miles is just the right amount of nature we offer a 5K Fun Run along the wide nature trails on the south side of the park.

If you are looking for a flat, perfectly marked course with crowds, plenty of hoopla, thousands of other runners and a big mouse, you should consider running at Disney Cool running in 2006!World. If however you want to experience a beautiful and challenging trail with only a few hundred fellow dirt enthusiasts, have the chance to win an unique award and more door prizes than you could shake a root at, sign up for the RRR. Don't take our word on it, see what other runners have said about previous RRR's.

The RRR is sanctioned by the Fort Myers Track Club. Proceeds from this event help support the educational programs of Riverwatch (Caloosahatchee River Citizens Association,) Audubon of Southwest Florida, Southwest Florida Watershed Council, CREW Land and Water Trust, Friends of the Charlotte Harbor Aquatic Preserves and trail maintenance by the Mudcutters Bicycle Club and the Caloosa Saddle Club.
