Running Options


We're just outside of Atlanta in beautiful Marietta, and there's not much that anyone can call flat & fast.  The course is a single out & back, we'll be chip timing, and doing overall awards based on Gun Time and age group awards on chip time.

Groups and Teams:

Grab your friends...Coworkers...Neighbors...Random Strangers off the street.

Racing is fun, and it's even better with a group of friends; so grab them'll have a great time, and you'll score a great discount.

5+...$2.50 off

11+…$3.75 off

21+…$5 off

51+…$6.25 off

100+…$7.50 off​

Beer Garden Pass:

Not interested in running, but want to enjoy the beer garden after the race, complete with samples...then you'll need a Beer Garden Pass.  You can add it on to a friends registration for $15 or purchase it by itself (they'll charge you a processing fee if it's the only thing you get).

It will also be available for purchase on race morning for $20.

Event Cap:

 It's important that we're able to park everyone, have adequate finisher pint glasses, and most importantly…enough beer!  The event is capped at 750 participants.   Based on previous year registrations, the race will sell out, so register early to guarantee your spot and beer!

Our events are designed to be fun and for the entire family. With that in mind any competitor, spectator, parent, volunteer, or sponsor, exhibiting unsportsmanlike conduct or interfering with the positive, competitive atmosphere of the event will be asked to leave the venue and course immediately with no refunds.

All registrations are final...we're sorry, but there are no refunds, transfers, or deferments.

Race takes place rain or shine.

Meet your event ambassador: Michael Selman

 "I started running in the early 80's and have been a running enthusiast ever since.  

I moved to the Atlanta area in 1995, where I eventually became the President and Newsletter Editor of the Chattahoochee Road Runners Club.  In addition to running, and racing, I have also written many running related articles, and have been published in several running publications, including Runner's World and Marathon and Beyond magazines on multiple occasions.  I have also won both the National RRCA Club Writer and Newsletter Editor awards.  I currently run about 120 miles a month and always have a half-marathon in my future.  

I am excited to be a Five Star Ambassador.  I run 10 or more of their races a year.  I particularly like the fact they respect the older age group runners.  This is the only organization I know who always gives awards to Overall Grand Masters and Overall Senior Masters runners.  Since I am 63, I often benefit from this recognition."
