Are you ready for a grueling Saturday morning? If so this hike is for you. Are you a strong D4 hiker and unsure about trying a D5 or preparing for that long Back Pack trip? Then this hike is for you. Are you training for a Trail Marthon or even Ultra? Then this hike is for you. Are you getting ready for a D3 Hike? Then this hike isn't for you.
Join us to take on the Kennesaw Mountain 19K Challenge. Why 19K? Because is sounds more extreme than 12 miles.
This hike has been previously known as a 'Double Kennesaw." Which means we will start at the visitor center, go over to Burnt Hickory and back twice. With a total elevation gain of over 3200 ft. it can be grueling. The faster you go, and some will run, the more difficult it becomes.
The plan is to meet at the visitor center and head out sharply at 6:30am. When we return back to the visitor center we will pause for a brief break. Special note, for those who make it back in time, we will be meeting up with the D4 group which starts their hike at 8:15am. We will start off togther. This will be a good opportunty to tell some fresh legs how tired you are.
As always please be sure of your abilities. However this hike does give those unsure about doing the extra distance the option to drop at the half way point. If you do not have any D4 or above experience, this hike is not for you. However you are welcome to take a look at the D4 8:15AM KM event.
So if you feel your physically ready to test yourself, please join us for the KM 19K Challenge.

1) I-75 North to exit 267B Hwy 5 Canton Road Connector
