The route of the race starts at Baseline Rd and meanders through some of the beautiful horse country of Central Florida. Runners will pass by rolling pastures and farms filled with wildlife, as well as a few charming rural towns along their way to the finish line.

The typical weather for this time of year in Ocala is mild and pleasant with temperatures ranging from mid-50s to low 70s Fahrenheit.

The crowds at Wild Things Races are always enthusiastic and encouraging; family members often come out to cheer on their loved ones or join them for part of their run! Plus, there’s usually live music playing throughout many parts of the course which adds even more energy to this already exciting event. In addition, local businesses often provide food samples or drinks along certain portions so runners can refuel if needed!

What really sets apart Wild Things Races from other half marathons is its unique post-race celebration – instead of just handing out medals like most races do – they host an after party complete with food trucks, beer garden (for those 21+), live music performances, vendors selling items related to running gear or apparel…and much more! It’s definitely one event that every runner must experience at least once in his/her lifetime!
