It's time for Thills in the Hills!

We´re excited to present the 16th Annual Thrill In The Hills at Fort Yargo State Park Trail Running Race.

It's Official... Registration for the Georgia Thrill In The Hills 5Mi/21K/50K (Solo OR Relay) Trail Running Race Opens September 21st, 2021!

We will have a cap on this race of 650 Participants

We are placing a cap on this event for 2 reasons... 1 parking availability, 2 getting that amount of runners into the woods. We will be doing a wave start again this year for the 50K (Solo OR Relay) 7:30 a.m. / 21K 8:00 a.m. / 5 Miler 8:15 a.m. (it worked great this past year and felt like we could increase the cap to the current number we have listed).

50K RACE COURSE (Solo)

This is a great single and double track off-road running experience. The race will start on the street (required for spacing) but will soon lead into the woods. The terrain is made up of a little bit of everything, rolling hills, single track, double track, roots with some technical sections. The course is beautiful and offers something for every runner truly wishing to ´ditch the city´. Nestled in the woods of suburban Atlanta lies a true gem. Well groomed system of trails with gentle slopes and beautiful scenery will leave you breathless (if that doesn't, the 50K will). Once you descend into the woods, you will forget your in the city. As a matter of fact, you will come to know why we follow the creed ´Ditch the City´. 50K course will be 2 laps plus a 5 mile loop!
