The 50k is 2 unique loops and a small out and back. Half marathon is a lollipop and the 50 miler is the 50k course with a longer out and back.
For runners who are crazy enough, we’ve added the Cloudland 50/50 Challenge! Run BOTH the 50 mile (on Saturday) AND the 50k (on Sunday)!
Where: Cloudland Canyon State Park
122 Cloudland Canyon Park Rd,
Rising Fawn, GA 30738
This race contributes money to Cloudland Canyon State Park/Friends of Cloudland Canyon State Park so SIGN UP!
The goal of these races is not to be hard but to be scenic, fun and safe. The 50k and 50 miler consist of mainly rolling hills with a few 500-700 ft climbs and of course the plunge down to the bottom of the canyon and back. 7500 ft gain on the 50 mile, 4500 ft gain on 50k and 2300 ft gain on the half. You will pass massive waterfalls, jaw dropping open views of valleys and a sunrise as far as you can see into the horizon.
The Half marathon is tough with all the beauty and hardship of the 50k / 50 mile course in one. Its totally worth it and features a plunge down to the bottom of the canyon and back up. TAKE YOUR CAMERAS!
