14 teams representing 6 different countries are officially registered for the event beginning May 12th on the beach adjacent to the Hollywood Beach Marriott in Florida. When registration for the event opened in April of last year, it took just 4 days for the field of 15 to be complete, with 3 alternate teams signing on the week after that. Since that time however, 4 teams have had to withdraw for one reason or another – leaving an open spot up for grabs. Interested teams can register here: https://worrell1000race.com/registration-2/
