The Octopus Ultra is a race born out of 2020 and the year of the canceled races. Like most fine Ultras, the Octopus originated in the RD's garage...the summer of 2020 in South Florida. After running out and back 8 times, for 100 miles (and 33 hours), the first Octopus Ultra was in the books...0 finishers in the 32-hour limit, but 2 finishers overall. The idea behind the Octopus race is to have a centralized location, a base station, with 8 Arms out and back.
