6875 Cochran Mill Road
Palmetto, GA US 30268

Only 25 miles from downtown Atlanta, Cochran Mill Park is located in Chattahoochee Hills, Georgia. Here you will see over 800 acres of woods, fields, streams, waterfalls, huge boulders, rock outcrops, wildflowers, mountain laurel, wildlife, and three historic mills. This hidden gem has never had a race of any kind until now. We invite you to come race with us, experience the beauty, and enjoy your own adventure. We have two races distances so there is something for everyone!


The 13.1 miler:

You will begin at 8:30am on a gravel road then enter the woods onto a flat to rolling Yellow loop. Once you reach the first stream, you will find a few more hills but also a lot more of the beautiful scenary the park has to offer. You will cross the famous Henry Mill Falls where you WILL get your feet wet a bit, then start a slow climb through a moderally challenging and technical Red loop. We've added a new trail or two so you will have something to look forward to here!

We will bring you back over the falls where you will complete the Yellow loop to the flat finish and back to the field where we started.


The 6.5 miler:

We will start you at 8:40am on the same gravel road as the 13.1 miler. You will run about 0.3 miles before entering the rolling Yellow #7 trail. This brings you to the other side of the gravel road where you will then enter the woods for the rolling Yellow loop. You then get to climb up and complete the Yellow loop before descending down towards the Falls. You will NOT cross Henry Mill Falls!   You will have the same flat finish section as the 13.1 miler and exit the woods at the field.
