Race Director Sean "Run Bum" Blanton has a vision: Design fun and
beautiful courses to run on and people will come.
"In Atlanta and throughout the south, I see race directors putting on events within proximity of big cities. This is to
draw big numbers's and make money. HOWEVER, I want to put on the most visually
pleasing races; I want people to get out and away from the city. I
want them to see what I have seen. Helen is a great place. You have the
Appalachian Trail that is not even 5 miles from town. You have a great
city and a great get away only 90 minutes from Atlanta. We have
coordinated this race to happen with the start of the holiday lights in
Helen that Friday night. Bring the family out take the kids around this
Bavarian alpine-style town and run the Helen Holiday Half Marathon the next day. Then
stay for a good meal and some good beer. Sunday relax and maybe go for a
hike with the family in Unicoi or along the Appalachian Trail. Its just
a great place to be! Fast runners, slow runners, young runners, and old
runners alike will all enjoy this course! I hope this race is the
inspiration for some people to start running. A huge thanks goes out to
Hunter Kipps, Erin Hannen, Jason Green, Unicoi State Park and the City
of Helen for making this happen. DO EPIC SH*T!"
As you can tell Sean is excited, as are we. We hope to see all of you guys November 28th!
