COVID-19: Unfortunately we were not able to hold the race during 2020, but we are back for 2021! Due to some restrictions and unknown circumstances we are going to offer a 50K and 50 Mile race this year (no 100 mile distance this year). Hopefully by 2022 everything will be back to normal and we will be able to offer the 100 mile.
Mike Melton will again be performing his exemplary race timing (MCM Timing and Results LLC).
Current plans are to use the Green trail at the Saint Sebastian Preserve as we have in past years.
As more details become available we will update the site. We are waiting on final approval from the
Park and State for the race before we put the registration up.
Philip Brown Memorial
As many of you may know, our first 100 mile winner, Philip Brown, was killed in a tragic motorcycle vehicle accident. Philip won our first annual Saint Sebastian 100 (November 2016). He also won the fastest overall first lap, which was a surprise award. This race was the first time any of us had met Philip but he made a huge impact on us as the Race Directors because of his constant good attitude combined with his modesty over being the consistent 100 mile distance lead runner. He made a huge impact on the students performing research and manning the Aid stations, as he gracefully volunteered for all of our research and on each lap he was quite gracious and always in a good mood.
Due to the tragic accident and our high regard for him, we are dedicating this year's race to Philip's memory - The Saint Sebastian 100 Philip Brown Memorial Race. The 2021 Number 1 running bib will be reserved in his honor, and Philip's wife, Mary, will keep the travelling trophy that Philip was so proud of. In return, Mary had a special traveling trophy designed in honor of Philip.
