Huff N' Puff
Revolution Running is excited to start 2017 off right with the Huff N Puff 1/2 Marathon & 5K trail race! All preregistered participants will receive a hoodie and a unique pint glass! (Make sure you register before January 10th to be guaranteed a hoodie!) A special award will be given out to anyone who is under 20 minutes in the 5K and under 2 hours in the 1/2 marathon. Top male & female finishers will receive prizes for both events! There are age group awards for the 5K and all 1/2 marathon finishers will receive an awesome medal! Both races are capped @ 150 people so register before it fills!
Packet pickup will begin race day @ 7:30am near the start/ finish line and the Friday before @ New Sole Running Store in McDonough. Water and snacks will be available on the course @ the 1.5 mile mark for both races, 8 mile & 11.5 for the 1/2 marathon too. This is a trail race and will take most runners over 2 hours to complete the 1/2 so we recommend you carry a water bottle and any additional fuel you may need.
Dauset Trails is a beautiful nature area and offers a little something for everyone who wishes to get off the road and enjoy the woods. The 1/2 course is made of mostly single track trail, rolling hills, roots, rocks, and some technical sections. Enjoy the morning twisting along the trails, running beside creeks, and maybe even spotting a few deer or a family of raccoons!
Race Day Info
Thank you all so much for coming out this Saturday to the Huff N Puff ½ Marathon & 5K. This race is growing every year and we hope that you have a great race day experience! Here are a few notes before race day to help answer some questions.
Local time: 8:04 AM
Early packet p/u is @ NEWSOLE Running store in McDonough (1315 McDonough Parkway, McDonough GA) from 12-6pm Friday.
Packet p/u the morning of the race starts @ 7am.
The Half marathon will start @ 8am and the 5K @ 8:10am.
Race morning parking will be in the large field in the front of Dauset Trails. Go through the main entrance and then follow the signs for parking. Please do not park in the trail head because this is where the race starts and finishes.
There will be 5 port-o-potties by the start finish line and there are none on the course… plan accordingly.
Once the 5K is complete we will do the awards ceremony and all ½ marathoners will receive a finishers medal when they complete the race. Anyone under 20 minutes for the 5K and 2 hours for the ½ marathon will get a Revolution Running coffee mug.
Everyone will receive a pint glass once the finish the race and you will need to go to the Jailhouse Brewing tent to get it. Also, with your ID shown, you get one glass full of Jailhouse Brew. Your ticket to receive your pour is the tab with your name on it attached to your bib. If you pull your tab off before the race and loose it then “no pour for you.”
The course will be marked @ every turn and confidence flags along the course. The 5K will be marked with YELLOW color flagging and the ½ marathon will be PINK colored flagging. Both course maps with their elevation is on the Huff N Puff Facebook page if you would like to see them. The 5K course is rolling downhill until 1.65 and the last mile is rolling up hill. The ½ marathon is rolling hills the whole time with a lot of switch backs and single track. It’s a challenging course and with warmer temps please have some form of handheld or water pack. There is one water stop for the 5K @ mile 1.6 and 3 for the ½ marathon (same stop you pass by 3 times) @ miles 1.6/ 8.7/ 11.5… all ish.
Stop by and thank our sponsors on race day! Altra Running, NEWSOLE Running, Jailhouse Brewing Company, JMC HOMES, Jennifer Simmons Photography, Bohland Family& Sports Chiropractic, Advocare- Annie Randolph, Edward Jones, Crossfit locust Grove & Proactive Rehab Inc.
Thanks again for coming out and we’ll see everyone on Saturday!
