COURSE & TIMING
We're in North Georgia, and there's not much that anyone can call flat & fast...but this one is really close! The Start & Finish will be in Fourth Ward Park!
Starting at Fourth Ward, you'll run & head up the stairs & hop onto the BeltLine, then the finish will come back to Fourth Ward Park. So…It's not pancake flat due to the stairs, but it's pretty darn close!
We'll be timing the start and the finish, so you're guaranteed to have a great net chip time.GROUPS AND TEAMS
Running is more F-U-N together, even if we're far apart!
