<<< Potential Weather >>>
I cancelled the long hiking on GA-AT on the same date due to unfavorable weather conditions in the north Georgia Mountains. In-town is safer and the in-town weather will be acceptable during the time window of Saturday morning.
<<< Itinerary >>>
We'll meet at the Visitor Center. We’ll go 2 rounds and over the Kennesaw Mountains 4 times for a total of 10.25 miles and approx. 2,900 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.
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.
<<< 10.25 miles/4 hours: 2.5 mph Moderate Pace >>>
We’ll cover 10.25 miles in 4 hours with approx. 2,900 feet climbing to achieve a moderate pace of 2.5 mph. This is an entry level D5.
We also use 2.5 mph as a targeted moderate pace in the remote mountains environment. This Kennesaw Mt. 10+ miles/4 hours is a very useful reference.
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!
