Checkpoint Zero are the official winners of the 2013 Sea 2 Sea AR!
 
Last year all teams and team members made it across the state on their own power. Unheard of in a event of this magnitude. Congrats to the defending champions Odyssey Adventure Racing who in 2012 cleared the course in 50.31:33.
 
Once again in 2013 all teams made it to the finish, though two teams were listed as UF because of the loss of a teammate due to medical emergency. We have followed up with them and all is fine now. That means for 2013 95% of all team members made it to the finish.
 
Please understand that all cutoff times were imposed on us. We would love to give you all the time you want on a section but sometimes our hands get tied.
 
With that being said three teams were still clearing the course after the first cutoff and they proved to be the best three teams this time around. Checkpoint Zero, Rev3/MK and FLX/US Air Force all put on a tremendous show. It was a heavyweight bout once it was narrowed down to them and it went back and forth. The final "cave" CP eluded Rev3/MK and FLX/US Air Force to give CPZ the win.
 
The detail of maps, lack of clear control descriptions and placement of controls produced a very challenging course that at times was excessively challenging. Many thanks to our experienced corp of volunteers for keeping the teams focused and moving towards their final objective.
 
Once again thank you to anyone and everyone who was apart of this event. We want you back next year and like always you will be the first to know with a discount to boot.
 
Thanks to the USARA for sanctioning this race. Checkpoint Zero will receive a $400 Regional Qualifier sponsorship to be applied towards entry fee into the 2013 USARA Adventure race National championship and also receive USARA Regional Champion Jackets. Also the top 4 Coed and the top 4 Open (all male or all female) teams will receive an invitation to the 2013 USARA Adventure Race National Championship.
 
As for the final individual races within the race:
-Endeavor Racing took Foot 5 with 11:06:00;
-CPZ took Boat 3 with 06:49:00 (though Odyssey did it in 6:33 but can only win one challenge);
-Odyssey took Bike 5 with 03:28:00 as it was a larger separation.
 
Never did we receive an email requesting an easy course. It wasn't. CP 1 set the tone from the start; this course was always close to getting away from the teams.
 
A diverse community came together with one goal: crossing the state of Florida from Sea 2 Sea on their own power. Pure Will and Determination kept them going while the outside elements push them harder than ever expected.
 
We shared high's and we shared low's and for some of us we even shared gear and clothing as well. We plan to have more coverage as this week rolls on. Happy Trails.

-The time for Layer 3 reflects a 58 minute reduction for our failure to provide their gear on time upon arrival at the Margaritaville TA. Unfortunately it may have cost them actual CPs because of a subsequent cut off time.
 
-Honey Stinger & Florida Xtreme/ Gramicci are both UF (unofficial) because they continued forward along the course while dropping a team member at some point. It took two medical emergencies for that to happen so don't think that they were soft.
 
-Five other teams were also given time reductions because of our failure to provide them with proper control descriptors leaving the Wekiva paddle heading towards Lake Louisa. Rev3/MK also did not receive the proper information, but were tipped off to the fact first by Checkpoint Zero. Rev3/MK's time for that segment was the fastest and was given to the other five teams that were in their position. Those teams are Checkpoint Zero, Florida Xtreme/ US Air Force, teamhalfwaythere.com/Spokes,etc., Arboc, and Fat Boys.
