The Gemini 100
This 100 mile event is perfect for setting a fast PR. Located at Silver Comet trail 4625 Camp Highland Rd in Smyrna. Please use address for GPS directions because the trail goes to Alabama. It is perfect practice to see just how many miles you can get in 36 hours. The course is mostly flat with 108 ft of elevation gain on the tiny hill but each loop will challenge you after a few miles but isn't that why you run long distance. We have a local race timer timing the event so with a chip time and personal race bib no worries about constantly looking at your watch. You must pass the timing mat each loop. The course is 9.2 total for the out and back distance surrounded by an enclosed trail in the suburbs of Atlanta's. There is plenty of space to set up aid station inside the park for anything you must have and enough room for a crew or family members to cheer you on. I do ask that you be mindful that the park is located in one of Atlanta's most historical neighborhoods so please be respectful of the space we are running in especially after 9 pm. No runners can have pacers until after 50 miles and the pacer can only assist if they're registered as a pacer participant which is $50 so $1 per mile because again this is mostly a fund raising race. There are plenty of trash cans, lights will be on but HEADLIGHTS are needed for the TRAIL portion after sunset. There are plenty of trees for moments of shade and beautiful houses surround the park along with details that the area was established in 1919. There is a strict cap on this event to comply with park rules so register early. If you want to end your year with high mileage, this is the place to do it. All proceeds go to helping Atlanta's homeless population.
The are NO refunds but you can definitely transfer to a lower distance and or upgrade your distance and pay the difference. This is an outside event rain or shine. Once you start running we ask that you just respect each runner's space. There is enough room to spread out so as to not impede on others.
