Not your grandfather's race company. Thundermeat Endurance is all about creating fresh and exciting race concepts built around having fun and pushing yourself for more. Whether you're a seasoned distance runner or want to join us to push new limits, we'd love to have you join the party. Our motto and our name is all about Getting Uncomfortable. Every race is different but all will challenge you to perform both individually and as a team.
A portion of proceeds from this event will be donated to No Longer Bound https://nolongerbound.com. No Longer Bound, located north of Atlanta, offers a 12-month long, residential, regeneration process to rescue addicts, regenerate men, and reconcile families. NLB provides broken and willing individuals with a place of escape from the enslavement of addiction. This organization is so special and unique in recreating the way addiction is treated that we could not be more proud to have an opportunity to support this great non profit!
Race Description - Shrinkage??
Team Thundermeat loves getting out there in nature by using our best local wilderness trail courses. This race will start at Gate City Brewery in Downtown Roswell and take you down along perfectly groomed sidewalks bordering the Chattahoochee River until you reach some fantastic trails. Here is where you need those lugged trail shoes. Amazing technical single track bordering the river closely and offering that feeling of being off the grid. After you finish your prescribed distance on the trails, you will reverse course back to the starting point. Be ready though, at some point near the end, the course will bring you to a perfect place for complete submersion in the Chattahoochee River. Don't worry, we will have your drop bag there and a changing facility for after you dunk yourself (We suggest taking the polar plunge but it is not required for participation in this event). Now that you feel amazing, you will complete the final mile to cross the finish line, collect your finishers medal and get your hot coffee or cold Gate City Brew (Drink Ticket Included) Now you are done. **Limited to first 125 runners.
Race Description 26 Miler
Great opportunity to run your first or 100th marathon distance with a 7:30 AM start time. This one will challenge you to stay mentally sharp as you run a difficult trail loop a number of times. Don’t worry, we will have a warm fully stocked shuttle vehicle should you decide running in the cold of January is just too much. Of course we don’t really expect anyone from Thundermeat Nation to hit the easy button. Our Aid Station will have some solid options to keep you engaged so you don’t really consider getting a ride back.
Race Description 13 Miler
This will be the same course, just shorter. Get done in half the time and hang out to cheer on the marathon runners.
For this race we will have manual timing by bib number and we'll enter the overall net race time for the 13 or 26 mile race only and upload into UltraSignup after the event is complete.
***Must register by January 10th to be guaranteed a hoodie on race day
Each participant will receive a high quality hoodie sweatshirt and a medal to remember what you did this day.
We'll also have a few other nice perks in there from our beloved sponsors.
Awards for the 26 and 13 mile individual winners and we'll declare an overall team winner
