New Distances for Spring 2021!

This 3-day event is meant to challenge and reward you. There are multiple distance options across three days, pick one or make a weekend of it! Saturday is race day, and Friday's and Sunday's runs are more relaxed. You’ll do some solid mountain climbing, fantastic downhill shredding, see incredible views, play in creeks and waterfalls, and see Georgia’s largest tulip poplar tree!

The Cohuttas offer some of the most beautifully rugged terrain in the Lower Appalachians, and you'll be in the perfect spot to launch an adventure in the mountains!

I encourage you to take your time on the trails and enjoy everything these mountains have to offer. Run the weekend for the full experience!

If you are a BIPOC runner, you can take advantage of the early bird pricing for the entire signup period! If you want to just run Friday OR Sunday, apply BIPOC10 at checkout to take $10 off these 2 runs as these 2 fees will not increase. (Register twice if you want to do both but not Saturday’s runs.) But because of the tiered and package pricing for the Saturday and multi-day runs, I can't really set up a static code, so DM me BEFORE YOU SIGNUP, and we'll make the magic happen! You will not pay above $115 for the max 3-day package! You must apply the code at checkout, though, as there's no good way to apply a credit after you register.

To get the full details, visit the Bearhoti Trail Fest site here: Bearhoti Trail Fest Information

This is SUPER important…..Mulberry Gap Adventure Basecamp is right up the road, but this event does NOT Start/Finish there as it has in the past. If you wish to stay and eat there, you need to work with them directly. They have campsites and cabins. Go to https://www.mulberrygap.com/ for details and reservations.

Volunteers are needed for this event!
Please email me if you’re interested in supporting, especially on Saturday! Available jobs include parking, aid manning, and safety sweeping (for each day). As thank you, volunteer gifts include runner swag and a comp entry to the 2021 Rabun Half Marathon in June or other 2021 Run The Cohuttas events. Please join the volunteering group on Facebook to get updates and interact with other volunteers: https://www.facebook.com/groups/runthecohuttas

Run the Cohuttas is a local grassroots organization and cannot offer refunds, transfers, or deferments. This includes if the event is cancelled due to last minute inclement weather. Every registration fee goes toward the betterment of this and other Run the Cohuttas events as well as the on-going trail maintenance efforts on and off the Bearhoti courses. Your understanding is appreciated!

Day-of registration is allowed - CASH-ONLY. Just add $5 to whatever is listed because my ability to make change will be limited. So just round up a little!
