The next Everglades Challenge is Saturday, March 02, 2013 and goes for 8 days.WaterTribe events are dangerous. Before even considering these challenges you must be an expert in your chosen craft . There are no safety boats, no safety net, and no excuses. Your safety and well being are up to you and only you. The WaterTribe hosts several adventure expedition races every year. These events are done with kayaks, canoes, and small sailboats. The Ultimate Florida challenge is a 1200 mile race that circumnavigates the state of Florida and takes the challengers through shark, alligator, and even python-infested waters. This month long race also has a 40 mile portage where all challengers must carry everything they started with.The Everglades Challenge starts on the Gulf of Mexico in Ft. DeSoto Park and traverses the southwestern coast of Florida and through the heart of Everglades National Park to end up in Key Largo Florida. Racers typically must push themselves through the night in dangerous conditions through some of the most challenging water in Florida to finish. The distance is 260 to 300 miles depending on your course. It's quite the adventure.This App allows you to track the progress of the events as well as the practice events (derby's) that occur between the major races. All challengers use a satellite tracker that records their positions at different intervals. You can use this app to view the race progress as it occurs and even follow individual challengers. Other Watertribe events include the North Carolina Challenge and the the Ultimate Marathon. As these event dates approach, the app will be updated to reflect the upcoming challenge.See http://www.watertribe.org for more information about the WaterTribe events !Recent changes:"Me" button added to show your location in relationship to the challengersHighlight selected challenger on map with green outlineAdded Everglades Challenge 2013 and Ultra Marathon 2013Fixed the Zoom issuesNow works on tabletsContent rating: Medium Maturity
