Revolution Running in partnership with the Cubihatcha Outdoor Education Center present the second annual Cubihatcha Challenge. Choose from 1 loop (7.5 mi.), 2 loops (15 mi.) or 4 loops (50k) around the pristine Long Branch Reservoir. This hidden jewel is one of the most beautiful trails on the South side of Atlanta. The trail around the lake is a mostly flat double track that will be great for first timers or those looking to PR.The Cubihatcha Outdoor Education Center is a wetland enhancement and protection corridor created to improve and protect existing wildlife habitats, while also providing an avenue for public education and enjoyment. Proceeds from the race will benefit the youth outdoor education programs at Cubihatcha. All participants will receive a long sleeve t-shirt and finishers medal. Those who finish the 50k will receive a beanie! Unique awards will be given to top 3 male and female in each race distance. There is no time limit on the 7.5 or 15 mile race so feel free to do as much walking as you would like, however the 50k participants must start on their 4th loop by the seventh hour.
There will be an aid station at the start/finish and one approximately halfway out on the loop. The aid station will be stocked with water, sports drink, and the usual aid station food (sports gels, bananas, cookies, PB&J) . You will be required to carry either a water bottle or hydration pack. If you must drop from the race please do so at either of the two aid stations and let a volunteer know.
Free Preview Run
Meet us Saturday March 11 from 8 am to 12 pm for a chance to run or walk as many loops around the lake as you wish. Please sign in and out at the office and leave no later than 12. The trail is fairly simple -- whether you go clockwise or counter clockwise keep the lake in sight and you will be ok.
