Event Beneficiary

Valentines is about love and sharing, and in that spirit, we've teamed up with Girls on the Run of North Georgia; and they'll be receiving a portion of all the proceeds from the event.


One of the great things we get to do throughout the year is work with Girls on the Run...and in the spirit of Valentines Day (sharing the love), we're working with Girls on the Run to raise money for their programs in the North Georgia area.

A portion of every race entry will be going to Girls on the Run, and every participant will have an opportunity to go out and raise a little extra through the online pledge tool.

Course & Timing

We're in North Georgia, and there's not much that anyone can call flat & fast.  It's not to hilly, and we'll have a great Start/Finish line.  The course is a lollipop, with a double loop around the pop.  We'll be chip timing the start and the finish.

Awards & Goodies

We have awards for the top 3 overall M/F, Top 3 overall masters M/F, and the top 3 in each of the normal 5 year age groups 10 & Under through 75+. 

Awesome Moisture wicking shirts guaranteed to all participants registered by 2/5/17, afterwards they're available while supplies last.

Groups & Teams

Grab your family, friends, and co-workers and participate as a team…you can score a great discount, and nothing will replace the additional fun.


We've got a special price for couples, and we'll even have a special award for the fastest pair.
