<<< Potential Weather >>>
There may be a chance of light rain/shower, but when weather is warm it can be more comfortable and refreshing to go hiking than staying indoors. Bring rain gear if you prefer, even though we’ll be totally sweaty and wet anyway. So bring clean shirt for change is probably even more important for your comfort.
<<< Objective >>>
Have you ever challenged yourself to
This 16-Miler at Kennesaw Mt. may be the answer.
<<< Distance, Ascent, Pace >>>
Distance is 16 miles; and the elevation gain is 4,600 feet. If one maintains a moderate pace of 2.5 mph, it’ll take 6.5 hours to finish.
The faster we finish, the deeper we breathe, the more calories we burn!
<<< Itinerary >>>
We meet a few minutes before our starting time at the Visitor Center. We’ll go 3 rounds and over the Kennesaw Mountain 6 times for a total of 16 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.
<<< 16 miles/6.5 hours: 2.5 mph Moderate Pace >>>
We also use 2.5 mph as a targeted moderate pace in the remote mountains environment, e.g. Appalachian Trails. This 16-Miler at Kennesaw Mt. is an excellent reference for its similar distance, climbing, and the pace.
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 take the early exit without finishing the entire course. So the typical 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 trip leader when you’re done.
