First things first...



Grounded Running is thrilled to announce that the Homestead Heatwave 10 x 5k is back to the original race date of August 20, 2017. Yes, this is a Sunday race. This race was previously part of the Lowcountry Ultras Race Series and continued to sell out each year we held the event.

Race Format

Run a 5k, every hour, on the hour for 10 hours straight and potentially run your FASTEST cumulative 50K ever! The race will feature an overall male and female top three with the fast total time after 10 hours. Runners must be ready and on the starting line at the top of every hour to continue on. Run as fast as you want or as slow as you want.... Just pace yourself enough to make it all 10 hours! You can easily run a 5k in an hour... how many can you do back to back?

For 2017 we will offer a 5k "Fun Run" for those individuals that want to participate but may not be up to the full distance challenge yet. The Fun Run with coincide with the 7:00am start of the 10 x 5k event.
