For questions about this event, please contact us.

Qualification Criteria

DONNA requires all athletes participating in the DONNA 110 to have previous ultra race experience of at least 50 miles within the race’s cutoff time.  Proof of experience will be requested upon registration.

DONNA 110 Course

The NEW DONNA 110 Course begins with an epic send off, from the start/finish of the DONNA 5K presented by AXA and The Jaguars Foundation with more than 2,000 5K participants and spectators cheering on your big start.  After an initial loop to base camp, the course continues with loops in the beautiful neighborhoods of Atlantic Beach.  Individuals will take the following routes to reach the 110 miles:

Course Time Requirements

  • Athletes must finish lap 6 by 9 p.m. to continue beyond 50 miles.
  • Athletes must finish lap 9 by 3:45 a.m. to continue on the final lap.
  • Athletes must finish the final lap by 6 a.m. to be recognized as finishing the first day. Any runner that misses any cutoff will still be permitted to run the DONNA Marathon and earn a marathon finish, but only those who meet all cutoffs and officially finish the marathon will be recognized as a DONNA 110 official finisher.
