The 34k mountain bike course is a good mix of forest service and technical single track trail that will offer a challenge to any level of rider. The elevation profile is moderate with some small creek crossings and a little bit of gravel road for a fast finish. Overall, this course has a little bit of everything that north Georgia has to offer anyone.

North Star Bicycle will be onsite and available for last minute adjustments and assistance! http://www.northstarbicycle.com/
The 15k course is a great loop, consisting of old forest service roads, rolling hills, and water crossings. New this year is some single track at the very end! The trail is not too technical, so it's a fast route!
https://www.strava.com/routes/12566622 The start/finish area will be at the same location, not as shown on the map. You will also NOT be running the entire track as shown on the course link.
This is the first time EVER the Army Rangers have opened the Montgomery Creek trail to the public for a race! This course is a blast to run and has an amazing waterfall along the route. You will not want to miss this one!
