February 23–26, 2023

Length: 72 Hours

The 24th Annual Sea to Sea Expedition Race across Florida is the largest attended Expedition Race in America and is non-stop for 72 hours from the West Coast to the East Coast of Florida. Teams will be dropped off at a secret location on the West Coast where they will fill half their sand bottles to then race on foot, mountain bike, and canoe across Florida to then fill the other half of the sand bottle at the finish in beautiful St. Augustine. There are up to 6 transition areas and 72 checkpoints to retrieve during the journey. Official finishers are only required to visit all the transition areas from the start to the finish line. All checkpoints are optional; however, teams are ranked by how many checkpoints they retrieve and the time they finished. Starts out as a race and becomes a life-changing event.

This year's race will be revisiting some of our favorite areas in Florida with a paddle start from Fort Island Beach, Florida as teams make their way through Santos, the best biking trails in Florida. Trekking along the Florida Greenway and paddling the crystal clear Ocklawaha River. Visiting the beautiful Ocala National Forest and some of the most scenic parks on the East Coast.

Race Tips

Race tips from the race director. Navigation will be very straightforward; however, get familiar with using a TOPO map. There will be no plotting UTM during this year's race; however, there is an O-Relay during the race so make sure at least two team members can navigate alone. All information forms and maps are waterproof. Train mostly on your mountain bikes before the race. Be prepared for any type of weather, late February in Florida has been in the low 30's at night to highs in the 80's during the day. Winter in Florida is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're going to get.
