In order to keep the race course thin, providing everyone with plenty of time to finish, and to allow participants to get an early start; we will have three start times available.
The official start time for the event will be 6:30 AM, with additional waves at 6:00 AM & 5:30 AM.
Because of the extended time for traffic control, there will be a $5.00 fee for each additional 30 minutes you register for before the official start at 6:30 AM.
The earlier waves will also be limited in size to 50 participants each.
Register by November 18th to guarantee your shirt & size!
All participants will receive a custom Finisher Medal!
The primary goal of this event is for everyone to GO FAST, but we'll have some great awards for everyone. Each race will have awards in the following categories:
Both the marathon and half marathon course are USATF certified, which means the Marathon will be a Boston Qualifier. The number is coming!
You will also be able to use your times for Peachtree Qualification, or almost any other race that requires a qualifying time.

1 mile FLAT & FAST loop
Both the Half & Full are USATF certified...so the Full will be a Boston Qualifier
Yes...It's a 1 mile loop.
NO...We've never had any one say it was tedious, we have had hundreds of people say it was loads of fun.
Course Cut Off
Notes when running:
1. Run the tangents...that means always run the shortest possible route.
2. If you want to walk or run slower, no problem...we just need you to run on the right so the faster participants can get through on the shortest path.
3. Remember...it's a one mile loop, with the .1 or .2 going from the lap count to the finish.
Make sure you have plenty of hydration to keep you going on your run! We will have water, a gatorade-type drink & bananas.
2 stations along the course (every 1/2 mile)
