Itinerary:

We'll meet and start from the Visitor Center. We’ll go 1 round and over the Kennesaw Mountain 2 times for a total of 6 miles and approx. 1,700 feet elevation gain.

Please arrive a little earlier than our starting time for getting ready and introduction. If you have to park at the overflow parking lot on Old HWY 41, you will need additional 5 to 10 more minutes to walk from there to the Visitor Center.

  1. We'll start from the Visitor Center and go over Kennesaw Mt., little Kennesaw Mt., and Pigeon Hill to Burnt Hickory Road for 3 miles.
  2. We'll turn around and retrace the same route to go over the mountains the 2nd time, and get back to the Visitor Center to complete 1 round of 6 miles.

 

This is a go at your own pace event. We all can go at the pace we like to train and enjoy for the moment. In the end we always get the excellent workout and something more.

Kennesaw Mt. is in town and nobody can get lost there. If anything happens, there are plenty of help available quickly to our members.

Kennesaw Mt. has many early exits, if necessary any participant can exit early without finishing the entire course. So the vetting process will not be applied to any registrant.

Just understand if you don’t finish the entire course in reasonable amount of time, you will not earn the credit; your name will be removed from the participant list. Even so, you’ll have nothing to lose, but great experience and pride of taking a fun challenge to make yourself stronger!

Please check in with the trip leader when you’re done.
