Race limited to 50 people per distance!
Come explore the beautiful Eureka Trail in Athens. This trail was created from the rails to trails conversion and is very flat and 100% runnable... Following a former railroad bed, the gravel trail winds southeast through woodlands, rural landscapes, and the community of Mashburn before ending at the outskirts of Englewood. Also as a bonus they are extending the trail right now and will be finished in November for us to utilize in December.
