Note: This is an "EXPLORATORY" trip. This means that there are parts of this trip, or perhaps the whole trip, that is new to your Trip Leader(s). However, they are confident that this will not be an issue.
This note is here so that you can make an informed decision. When a Trip Leader isn't personally familiar with a trip, there is an increased chance of things not going as planned and you need to be prepared. The Trip Leader may have additional details in the itinerary.

Itinerary:

The plan is to start downtown at the Capital and take the trail system out to Stone Mountain. We'll run through Candler Park, Decatur, Avondale Estates, Clarkston and Stone Mountain Village and park.


This is not a beginner's run.  The run is geared towards runners with recent long distance running experience of 13 miles or more.  Schedule and itinerary are subject to change at the discretion of the trip leaders. The Trip Leaders reserves the right to remove anyone from the list that they feel cannot handle or complete this run.

We plan to eat breakfast/lunch as a group after our run at the German Restaurant in Stone Mountain Village. Everyone should plan to bring money to pay for their own lunch and beverages.
