This is a challenging course that includes both road and trail through the scenic beauty of the North Georgia Mountain foothills.  Not for the feint hearted!  The trail part of the course is hilly and has some rocks on the footpath that circles the reservoir near downtown Dahlonega. This is a timed event with several age/gender categories, and awards will be made for 1st to 3rd places, in each category.  Parking is abundant in Dahlonega, and all safety precautions will be taken.  Please visit (link) for further information and to register, or just buy a shirt and support our Ranger Vets. 

Half Marathon (Mountain Marathon) Sunday, November 10, 11:30 am. to 3:00 pm

This event uses all the same forestry roads the US Rangers train on. Tough YES, but not too tough for runners capable of covering the 13.1 miles.  This course starts and finishes on the airfield at Camp Merrill.  Almost all of the half marathon course is off-pavement on service roads that curl through the Appalachian Mountains, only feet from the Appalachian Trail.  Challenge yourself with two grueling hills where America’s best soldiers are trained. Parking is abundant.  Food and Beverage will be available at the on-post service Club, The Overhang, after the event.  This includes beer and wine and a full menu.  You can count on some active duty Rangers to be running the course.  Please visit (link) for further information and to register, or just buy a shirt and support our Ranger Vets.
