It's Official... Registration for the XTERRA Georgia Thrill In The Hills 21K/42K Trail Running Race is Open!

We will have a cap on this race of 575 Participants! We are placing a cap on this event for 2 reasons... 1 parking availability, 2 getting that amount of runners into the woods. We will be doing a wave start again this year for the 42K 8:00 a.m. ⁄ 21K 8:30 a.m. (it worked great this past year and felt like we could increase the cap to the current number we have listed).

RACE COURSE

This is a great single and double track off-road running experience. The race will start on the street (required for spacing) but will soon lead into the woods. The terrain is made up of a little bit of everything, rolling hills, single track, double track, roots with some technical sections. The course is beautiful and offers something for every runner truly wishing to ´ditch the city´. Nestled in the woods of suburban Atlanta lies a true gem. Well groomed system of trails with gentle slopes and beautiful scenery will leave you breathless (if that doesn't, the 13.1 ⁄ 26.2 miles will). Once you descend into the woods, you will forget your in the city. As a matter of fact, you will come to know why we follow the creed ´Ditch the City´. Half marathon course will be 1 lap ⁄ full marathon course will be 2 laps!

AID STATIONS

3.95 (water), 6.95 (water / gatorade / gel packets), 10.3 (water), 13.25 (water / drop station for 42K runners)... please note at each of these stations we will have trash cans located just beyond the station... please  help us keep the trails clean by putting the "gel packets" and "cups" in the trash cans.
