A Message from the Race Director:

Everyone has a specific goal or target in mind, which is the beauty of this event. The volunteers are just that volunteers. If you need their help ask them. They’re there to help you achieve your goals.
We strongly advise you to run with a buddy, especially at night. If you must be by yourself at night, make sure to notify the race director or volunteer in charge and keep your phone and our phone numbers ready. (Adamy - 864-989-0028 or Joye – 770-598-0352). Pacers are welcome and much encouraged. However, as a courtesy we would like all pacers to check in at the pavilion before going out on the course.
Sincerely,
Adamy
