The Underground Circus 100
The Underground Circus 100 which is a no DNF race😊is being held on our beautiful scenic Atlanta's Silver Comet Trail and will take you 3.5 miles out and 3.5 miles back. The route is fast relatively flat asphalt which is surrounded by a grass trail so you can run on either, distance is the same. The trails are beautiful: trees, wooded areas so if want trail it's waiting for you. The trail will be open to the public but their will be always someone at the aid station. The race has a small town feel to it as I am up and down the course all day until the last runner finish. The start of the trail which runs to Alabama has plenty of restaurants, Publix and close to hotels. You're near our historic structures such as Dr. MLK Jr. house and GA TECH, Spellman and Clark Atlanta College, Mercedes Benz Stadium and The GA World Congress Center. The Aquarium and Civil Rights Museum and Morris Brown College is all within 15 minutes from the race site. The Park is in a suburb of Atlanta( Smyrna) and there is a Racetrack & QT gas station, restaurants across the street from the trails. This race is perfect for a 1st time Ultrarunner whom may not be used to staying up all day and night. Your assistance is a fully stocked (aid station) will be supplied with cups, sports drink as well as various snacks, all night soup, pizza and please if you have a restricted diet bring your items for the race. I love you guys but I will not be making coffee runs, extra batteries etc😀please come prepared for your 48 hours. The RD is on hand the entire time checking in on you. The RD has the final say on DQ. There will be no exceptions on course markings. If you do not cross the timing mat your lap isn't counted. There are many walkers/runners asking questions about what are you doing especially when they saw you running 8 hrs ago and wonder why you're still moving but it keeps you going. Saturdays are busy in Atlanta especially when it's hot and it's usually 80 degrees during May so sunscreen 😉. There are no sharp turns or non marked trails so no chance of getting lost. You only job will be run as much as you want. Remember don't stress about not making cut offs because we can always drop/change you to the timed events if you miss a cut offs. This is a challenge but definitely NO STRESS and the RD and volunteers are definitely here to help you. Pacers can be available on request but no one can carry you. We want to see you finish ❤️. All proceeds go to helping the homeless. Please donate by bringing socks, underwear toothpaste toothbrushes please and thank you
