On Sunday, January 26 The Buccaneer will host the 5th annual St. Croix Scenic 50 ultramarathon.
The 2014 edition of the race will feature the original 50 mile individual event, a 50 mile relay with four legs, and new this year a 50 km individual event. As challenging as it is beautiful, on this island tour the views aren't the only thing that will take your breath away.
The course, from Christiansted to Frederiksted and back, gains almost 5,000 feet of elevation as it crosses over Scenic Drive and back, finishing on Mermaid Beach at The Buccaneer.
Along the way runners will be supported by a small army of volunteers stationed every 4-6 miles along the course handing out food, water and ice.

I'm organizing the 50 Mile Ultramarathon on St. Croix, USVI while parenting, running, working (occasionally) and loving life, among other things!
