The 5K starts on Laurel Lane, adjacent to the Firefly Trail and runs through the lovely countryside of the Maxeys community. The race runs the last mile on the Maxeys Model Mile to the finish line.
The Maxeys Model Mile 5K is a founding member of the Firefly Trail Race Series. The Firefly Trail is a planned 39-mile rail-trail from Athens to Union Point in Northeast Georgia, connecting Athens-Clarke, Oglethorpe, and Greene Counties. The historic rail line, known as the Athens Branch of the Georgia Railroad, branched off the still-active Augusta-to-Atlanta line in Union Point and passed through the towns of Woodville, Maxeys, Stephens, Crawford, Arnoldsville and Winterville on its way to Athens.
