Georgia Death Race
Mar 30 @ 7:00 am – 11:45 pm
Georgia Death Race

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.

Double Helix Dash @ Hudson Alpha
Apr 2 @ 5:30 pm – 5:45 pm
Double Helix Dash @ Hudson Alpha

The Double Helix Dash 5K and 1-mile fun run is one of the most unique races in North Alabama. It begins and ends on Genome Way in front of HudsonAlpha and winds through McMillian Park’s distinctive double helix path. This year, the race will accommodate even more participants thanks to a new course. Registration is now open.

Proceeds from the Double Helix Dash support HudsonAlpha’s work with rare and undiagnosed genetic disorders, which affect some 25 million children and adults across the country. Through the Clinical Sequencing Exploratory Research (CSER) program and the Smith Family Clinic for Genomic Medicine, HudsonAlpha is providing life-changing and life-saving answers to families struggling with rare and undiagnosed diseases. Using our cutting-edge sequencing technology, HudsonAlpha scientists have already provided much-needed diagnoses for children in our community.

This effort is changing lives across North Alabama. Lakely, a 14-year-old CSER patient, is just one example of how HudsonAlpha’s work is not only providing answers, but also delivering hope and peace of mind. (Read Lakely’s Story)

Thanks to all who supported the race last year by running, volunteering or simply cheering on participants. A big thank you to our 2016 sponsors and partners:

If you are interested in sponsoring the 2018 event, please contact Karen Petersen, Director of Annual and Planned Giving, at kpetersen@hudsonalpha.org. If you have any questions directly related to the race, please contact Alex Clark, Race Director at htcequipment@gmail.com.

OVERVIEW:
Grayson Highlands is Virginia’s third largest state park with just over 4500 acres of land. This beautiful park is located in Grayson County, Southern Virginia. This is the HIGHEST state park in Virginia. They are best known for our beautiful vistas and the wild ponies that live in the highlands. Expect to see spectacular views from all of the trails and overlooks, On a clear day, you can see for 70 miles. The park offers 15 miles of trails which we will run almost ALL of. This is one of the few places left in the south where there are still fir trees. Runners of both races will be running into this. You will see waterfalls, as far as you can see views, streams, rhododendron tunnels, 100+ year old built stone walls, views of two states and more single track than you can imagine!
This is the first and only trail race within Grayson Highlands State Park! You will have a view of Mt. Rogers, the HIGHEST point in Virginia. This race runs over Little Pinnacle or Haw Orchard Mountain, at 5,089 ft, making it the HIGHEST race in Virginia!
The trails are beautiful but anything but smooth or easy. There is some serious elevation change as well as some VERY rocky/technical sections. The course for both races will have a little bit of everything in it from short steep climbs to smooth rolling hills to flat. This has to be the prettiest run in Virginia!
Bring a camera and enjoy the course. Who knows you might even see a pony when you’re running!

Unfortunately we can not mail shirts if you do not attend the race. The shirts are for runners who actually run and the rest of the shirts we give to volunteers or donate to charity. Thanks for understanding!

prizes/awards

Price, prizes, awards…

Overall 1-3 male and female for both races.

all runners get a shirt and a finisher award. The race in part benefits the park, local rescue squad and the friends group.

Wet Dog Sprint Tri @ Point Mallard Park Decatur
Jun 15 @ 7:00 am – 10:00 am

After a year of no dogs, Big Brothers Big Sisters has decided that we missed y’all way too much! The staff and Board of Directors sat down, hashed it out, and made a BIG decision to BRING BACK THE DOG!

This is still a fundraiser for Big Brothers Big Sisters serving Morgan, Lawrence, Winston and Cullman Counties and a very major fundraiser at that! There are some BIG changes though, the main one being the DATE!

In order to make our race appealing to more people and not be in competition with other local races, we have decided to move it to MAY 19TH, 2018. The venue, Point Mallard Park, is still the same and the start time is also the same, 7:00 a.m. The water park will be CLOSED, so traffic issues and parking issues are no long issues! We are set to be one of the first triathlons in our area…what an awesome way to train and get ready for the bigger ones!

On-line registration should be open this afternoon! There are some “Early Dog” specials that will end on February 15th, so for the best deals GO AHEAD AND REGISTER!

As always, we are available to answer any and all questions, either through email to wetdog@bbbsmcal.org OR by phone, 256-353-0157. Feel free to reach out to us with any questions, issues, or just to say HI!

WE ARE SO EXCITED TO BRING BACK THE DOG!????
