These scenic runs will challenge the experienced trail runner and be a great run for the newer trail runner who may not be comfortable with some of the more technical trails.

The Georgia Death Race is a point-to-point ultramarathon trail race in North Georgia. The race is 68ish miles with close to 40,000 feet of elevation change, starting at Vogel State Park and finishing at Amicalola Falls State Park. Starting the race at 5:00 a.m. allows runners of all speeds to be on top of Duncan Ridge on the Duncan Ridge Trail for the sunrise. From here you will see the sun rise over the back of Brasstown Blad, the highest point in Georgia. With the leaves off the trees the sunrise will light up the surrounding mountains and valleys that make up Northern Georgia. This, in it self, makes it worth it to run the race. The first 8 miles has close to 3,500 feet of elevation change. Including the 2,300 ft climb over 3.8 miles up to the summit of Coosa Bald.
Other course highlights include views from random points along the trail of mountains as far as you can see, the Toccoa Swinging Bridge, Amicalola Falls, the remote Benton Mackaye and Duncan Ridge Trails, and a beautiful wide open field with close to unobstructed views of the mountains some 37 miles in. Not to mention this race is hard as nails.
While the point of the race is for it to be hard, the real reason for this race is to showcase the North Georgia Mountain trails as well as create an experience that you will never forget. The sheer beauty of this race masks the difficulty of the terrain.
Included in the entry fee are 10 fully stocked aid stations in the middle of no where, a 68 mile point to point course, a unique tee, some photos (if our photographers take photos of you), a Death Race Spike (only if you finish), hot meal (catered) ), and everything else that comes with doing a 68 mile course in the mountains.
$100 cash prize for whomever picks up the most trash on the course.
The Heel & Crank Duathlon is a very popular duathlon in Alabama that is put on by the Team Rocket Triathlon Club with all proceeds benefitting ALSA in memory of local triathlete, Darin Kruse. This race is a beginner-friendly event as well as a good sprint for the veterans. This race is not USAT sanctioned as we are trying to reduce costs to beginners and allow recumbent cyclists.
