A Stroll In The Park 12-Hour Endurance Run
There’s nothing better than a timed ultra for showing
runners what they can accomplish. For its sixth year A Stroll in The Park
Endurance Run will provide runners a chance to test their medal against
the clock. As one runner said, "miles in this race are like potato chips -- I wanted to do just one more!"
NEW Location! Crushed gravel running surface!
We are moving to Chattahoochee Point -- 5790 Chattahoochee Pointe Dr, Suwanee, GA 30024
This is a new park which opened in June, 2015. The one mile loop is FLAT and is crushed gravel. For those who hate trails and hate asphalt, this race is for you! There are no rocks or roots to trip you and the soft surface is kind to your legs.
The race begins at 7:00 AM and ends at 7:00 PM. The course is on FLAT crushed gravel, one mile per loop. The loop is inside a park where there are restrooms available. The park will be open, so expect inquisitive looks and comments from passers-by.
There are NO lights along the path after dark, so we recommend bringing a head lamp to wear once the sun goes down. Wearing gaiters is recommended.
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 is served at around
noon and soup and grilled cheese sandwiches later in the day. Some vegetarian items will be included.
Lap Counting is done by volunteers who are trained to count
laps carefully. We don’t have snazzy timing gizmos, but smart and dedicated volunteers can make mistakes. If we miss a lap, we’ll take your word for it.
There is plenty of parking close to the course and there
is also ample room for chairs and other self-support items.
