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.
If you want to run virtually, 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! (PLEASE NOTE - camping will only be allowed during the actual event this year)
All races officially start at 8am though we will give options to start at alternate times as requested.
The course is a mix of grassy field and trail. The course is mostly non-technical. We added a little distance to it this year, and it will be a 2 mile loop with a couple of rolling hills thrown in for fun!
All participants get a cool Miles for Maria performance shirt, beanie, and dog tag finisher medal!
LAST PERSON STANDING!
Back is the Last Person Standing competition, with a twist! We start at 8am, and every 30 min you will need to report to the start line to complete the 2 mile loop. Sound easy? At 11am it becomes every 25 minutes. At 130pm it becomes every 20 minutes. At 330pm, every 15 minutes. IF (And we do mean IF) there are still more than one person reporting to the start by then, at 5pm it become every 10 minutes.... and you know.... that's pretty darn fast!
The LAST PERSON to report on time to the start line at the announced start times AND after completing full laps as described will win $100!!
We will announce more detailed information about aid stations as we get closer. CDC guidelines regarding COVID-19 restrictions will dictate this.
Pacers will not be allowed.
Local time: 6:06 AM
