No shirt No awards... ALL fun! You get an official time!!!
Local time: 4:19 AM
Whether you run the 10k or the 30k, you'll not be disappointed! Both distances will summit Grassy Mountain (ele 3600 ft), experience pristine singletrack, and circumnavigate Lake Conasauga, Georgia’s highest alpine lake.
Although you can’t go up to the tippy top of the tower itself, the views off the Grassy Mountain tower are spectacular! You’ll be able to see Fort Mountain State Park across the valley to the south, the US 411 corridor including Chatsworth and other communities, and the beautiful mountains of the Cohutta Wilderness to the north. Bring your camera!!
Lake Conasauga is Georgia’s highest lake and sourced by Mill Creek. The water is the clearest you’ll find anywhere, and it’s simply a delight to run around (and swim across).
The 30k additionally drops to the Milma Creek Trail via Emery Creek, one of my favorites in the area. The Upper Emery Creek Trail has fewer creek crossing than the more popular lower section. With its fern forests, seasonal wildflowers and old growth forest, it’s singletrack perfection that you don’t want to miss.
There's loads more information you need, so check out this link for all the details:
