Packet pick-up will be located at the pavilion to the right of the path. There is a restroom in the pavilion. The park has portable toilets near the running path, shaded areas, and plenty of parking. There are NO lights along the path. You may need head lamp until sunrise and then a bit after sunset. Wearing gaiters is recommended.
No refunds, transfers, rollovers, or deferments.
Runner Aid and Lap Counting
There will be one aid station with drinks, cold and hot food, cookies, candy, and anything else we can think of. Pizza, soup, and grilled cheese sandwiches will be offered later in the day. Some vegetarian items will be included. As there is plenty of parking close to the course, there is ample room for runners to set-up chairs, small tables, and other self-support items.
Lap Counting is done by seasoned volunteers, some who are runners themselves. Only full loops count; if runners are in the middle of a lap at cut-off time (3:00 PM, 7:00 PM), only the last full lap completed counts toward final mileage. Counting is a manual process; we know mistakes may occur. If we miss a lap, we’ll take your word for it. Any discrepancies in lap counts will be decided by the Race Director.
**We count by laps completed, not by what your watch shows. This course has been measured and the lap count is what counts and determines ranking.
**All runners must verify their lap count before exiting the course at the end of their race. Verification of final lap count is finalized between runner and RD, and runner signature on lap count page.
The course loop is a one-mile (approximate) crushed gravel path with grass shoulder. Only complete laps are counted toward final mileage. There are no rocks or roots to trip you and the soft surface is kind to your legs. The course is located at Boling Park in Canton, GA so in the event of rain or snow, there will be wet areas to navigate. For those who are not trail runners and prefer not to run on asphalt, this race is for you!
A chart of the exact loop mileage and a chart of major distances, half-marathon, marathon and 50K, will be available at the event to ensure you attain your goal mileage!
We need volunteers to assist with race set-up, packet/bib pick-up, lap counting, aid station support, and race site clean-up. Please let your family and friends know they can come with you to help out during the race! See the Volunteer Registration button next to Registration. Thanks!
