If you don't see anything, that means this race is partner-less!

Course Information

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.

The 5K course is an out-and-back.

Use of a headlamp/light is recommended
