Huff N' Puff Race Info
Revolution Running is excited to start 2020 off right with the Huff N Puff 1/2 Marathon & 5K trail race!
Water and snacks will be available on the course at the 1.5 mile mark for both races and also at the 8 mile & 11.5 mile for the 1/2 marathon. 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! Post race we will have a DJ, Jailhouse Beer, and the best post race atmosphere.

Race Day info
We are super excited for this race and being able to support such an amazing place like Dauset Trails! In order to help race day to go smoothly here is some race information to help everyone.
Local time: 4:31 AM
LOCATION: Dauset Trails 360 Mt Vernon Church rd Jackson Ga 30233
PARKING: Go through the main entrance and then go to the field to the left side. All parking will be in the field; the trail head will be closed to all race participants because that is where we set up the race.
PORTO’S: There will be 5 porto’s at the trail head; please plan accordingly.
RACE TIMES: ½ marathon starts @ 8am and the 5K @ 8:10am.
RACE DAY REG: There is no race day reg available.
PACKET PICKUP: There will be packet pickup Friday 1-24-20 from 2pm until 6pm @ NEWSole Running 1315 McDonough Parkway McDonough, GA 30253. Race Day pick up will start at 7am until 7:50am at Dauset Trails. Also, we will not be able to accommodate hoodie size swapping during packet pickup. After the race is done any runner who registered after the hoodie deadline can try and get one or if you would like to exchange your size you will have to wait until after the race.
RACE COURSE MARKINGS/ ROUTE: The course will be marked with white signs at every intersection so it’s up to the runner to pay attention to the course. There will be tape on trees for confidence markers throughout the course. Do not rely on the runner in front of you to pay attention. The 5K course follows the ½ marathon course all the way until around mile 2.9-3 of the race and then it splits off. This is super important because if you miss the turn you will run the last 4 miles of the ½ marathon course.
AWARDS/ POST RACE: 5K awards will be after the last 5K runner finishes and all ½ marathoners will receive a medal as they finish. All runners will receive a pint glass when they finish and, if you show your ID and are 21 and above, you will get a free beer from Jailhouse Brewing Company. Please be responsible if you are driving.
BIBS: Please make sure your bib is on the outside of your clothes on the left side. It must be visible and not under any clothing when you cross the finish line to make sure we capture your chip time. Also, these chips are reusable so we will be collecting them at the finish line after the race.
