We're in North Georgia, and there's not much that anyone can call flat & fast. So yes, there are some hills, but it's nothing crazy, and you'll be so busy having fun, that you won't even notice.
All participants are encouraged to bring their own hydration on course (i.e. water bottle, handheld, vest, etc.) To limit contact there will be no water station. Water will be provided at the finish.
