Race Information

This is an exciting race on the Sutallee trails of Canton, GA, just a short drive north of Atlanta. The great thing about the sport of running is the camaraderie among runners. In a typical race the faster runner, the Hare arrives long before the middle/back of the pack and the slower runner, the Tortoise arrives as the party is ending. How about a race where everyone finishes (approximately) at the same time? Introducing the Tortoise and the Hare Half Marathon and 10k!

Runners estimate their finishing time to determine their starting time. Runners starting in half hour waves – Tortoises first! The slower you are, the earlier you begin and the faster you are, the later you begin with the same goal: Finishing at the same time. This will bring everyone to the finish in a smaller time frame so there will be lots of fellow runners to celebrate your finish!
