RACE COURSE 

This is great off–road running experience. The course is beautiful and offers something for every runner truly wishing to ´ditch the city´. Nestled in the woods of North Ga lies a true gem. The well groomed system of trails and beautiful scenery will leave you breathless (if that doesn´t, the 11K or 30K will). Once you ascend into the mountain woods, you will forget the city. As a matter of fact, you will come to know why we follow the creed ´Ditch the City´. Start at Charlie Creek Farms heading southwest on Snake Nation Rd to Camp Morganton Rd. turn right on Camp Morganton Rd. follow Camp Morganton Road to the T dead end and turn left at the T. Follow this gravel road staying to your right side (driveways and roads to your left are private property). Stay straight on gravel road and it will enter National Forest Service property. This old logging road and ultimately primitive trail will climb and snake toward Scroggin Knob. This trail will dead end into the Benton MacKaye Trail. Runners will turn left (south) on the Benton MacKaye trail and follow the Benton MacKaye to it dead ends into Stanley Gap Trail. Turn left heading east on Stanley Gap Trail and follow to Deep Gap parking lot (aid station). At this point the 11K and 30K will split.

On other side of Aska Rd. runners will tap into Lower Green Mountain Trail. Follow Lower Green Mountain Trail to the top of Green Mountain. At the top of Green Mountain stay right and down on the Lower Green Mountain Trail and follow Trail to the Long Branch Connector Trail (turn right) and follow the Long Branch Connector to the Long Branch Loop (stay straight). This is an oval loop so Runners will traverse this loop in a clockwise direction and must not take any side trails especially at the Shady Falls Parking Lot Trail so stay to your right on the loop until you comeback to the Long Branch Connector (turn left). Follow Long Branch Connector back to the Lower Green Mountain Trail (turn left) to top of Green Mountain (stay left and down). Lower Green Mountain Trail to Aska Road (use extreme caution crossing Aska Road). After crossing Aska Rd.
