St. Croix Scenic 50 - Runners on Scenic Drive

What better way to see this gem of the Caribbean than to run over its rugged mountains and along its stunning shoreline? Since it’s inception in 2010, the St. Croix Scenic 50 has been as challenging as it is beautiful. The scenic 50 mile race course takes runners up heart pounding climbs and quad screaming descents in the tropical winter heat. The St. Croix Scenic 50 offers both Individual and Team Relay events, so if your not ready to run a full 50 miles you can have a two to four person relay team. The Team Relay divides the 50 mile course into four legs (approximately 11.9 miles, 11.8 miles, 11.8 miles, and 14.5 miles long) to be run by a 2 to 4 person team, using the top of ‘The Beast’ and the Turn Around Aid Stations as transition points. There is also a 50 Kilometer Individual event, which starts near Ham’s Bay and follows the final 31 miles of the course.

The Course:

The 50 mile race course starts near Fort Christianvaern in Christiansted and leaves town via Company Street, turning through Times Square onto King Street and onto Northside Road. After a few miles and the decent down Morning Star Hill the course turns onto North Shore Road briefly before beginning the ascent up Scenic Drive East. The course follows Scenic Drive (turning onto dirt jeep trails) over St. Croix’s beautiful mountains into the rainforest before dropping onto the island’s western shore at Ham’s Bay.  Following the shoreline, runners stay on Ham’s Bluff Road into Frederiksted, turning onto Strand Street to the Fish Market where the Turn Around Aid Station is located.  The course follows the same route back to Christiansted and then proceeds out of town on Hospital Street to East End Road finishing at The Buccaneer’s Mermaid Beach.
