About This Activity

The Hontoon Runabout returns for 2016! Join Off The Grid Racing on February 20 for a challenging trail run through the wilds of this beautiful island located in the St. Johns River.

The Hontoon Runabout is a 5 or 10 kilometer trail run that will take competitors through pine flatwoods on the higher elevations and oak hammocks, cypress swamps and marshes along the border of the St. Johns River and its tributaries.

Runners might see red-shouldered hawks, white ibis, or limpkins on their journey through the ancient Timucuan habitat. Snails gathered from the shallows were a common food of these people. Over many years, the discarded shells accumulated to form large mounds on the island.
