We have an exciting race coming to you in the mountain trails of Blue Ridge, GA. The great thing about the sport of running is the camaraderie among runners. In a typical race the faster runner (Hare) arrives long before the middle/back of the pack and the slower runner (Tortoise) arrives as the party is ending. How about a race where everyone finishes (approximately) at the same time?! Introducing-The TORTOISE and the HARE 50K! The course is mostly of rolling hills with intermediate inclines.

The scenery will change throughout the course and you will find yourself on one of the most beautiful trails in Georgia. The course will be well marked with colored ribbon as well as signs and volunteers at critical turning points on the trail.
There are a total of 4 aid stations (one you pass twice) that will be fully stocked with all the typical sweet/carbs you could ask for as well as Powerade and water. We will have volunteers on hand to refill your hydration pack/bottles and medical staff on hand should an injury occur.
