Miles for Maria was created in honor of my daughter Maria who was diagnosed with Epilepsy before her 3rd Birthday. We watch how she bravely faces adversity daily, and her strength convinced me to put on an endurance race for her, to help raise money for Epilepsy research.
NEW THIS YEAR!! WE HAVE A VIRTUAL RUN!! Sign up using the "0 Hours" category, support the cause, and get the cool swag - without breaking a sweat!
The Fall event is in our NEW venue, the Still Family Farm in Powder Springs! The farm has indoor restrooms, PLENTY of parking next to the start, PLENTY of camping and setup space, and we will have fire pits during the evening hours!
All races officially start at 8am, though we do allow for the following alternatives;
12 HOUR - 8pm start
6 HOUR - 2pm, 8pm start
3 HOUR - 11am, 2pm, 8pm start
All you have to do in order to sign up for the alternative times is sign up for the appropriate category, and send us a quick email letting us know which alternative time you want.
The course is a mix of grassy field and trail. The course is very flat, and mostly non-technical. The loop is approx 1.45 miles.
All participants get a cool Miles for Maria 1/4 zip pullover jacket and finisher medal!
There will be a fully stocked aid station at the start/finish that will have anything you can possibly imagine from ultra food staples to some really yummy treats! There will be a second station on the course that will be mostly fluids and some ultra food staples.
Pacers are allowed in the 24 hour after the first 12 hours.
