Mountain Goat Adventures and SORBA Woodstock present the first ever Trail Half Marathon and 10K at Blankets Creek. On November 10th, trail runners will storm the Blankets Creek Mountain Bike Trails for your choice of a half marathon or 10k trail run. Both courses are almost entirely rolling singletrack with great fall views of Lake Allatoona. We all know Blankets Creek is a great place to run - here's your chance to have your day on the trail without the worry of bikes slowing you down. Walkers and hikers are encouraged to participate in the 10k. All half marathon finishers will receive a hand crafted finisher necklace or keychain from local artist Kelly Scott of Kelly's Clay Creations LLC. Medals and prizes presented to the top 3 overall male and female finishers, in each race. Medals three deep in all age groups and sweet podium tees to all first place finishers. Register before October 20th to guarantee your shirt size in one of our great wicking tees. You may register online here or by mail. This race has a limit of 400 runners, so please sign up early so you do not miss out. For more information, visit www.mountaingoatadventures.com. All trails at Blankets Creek will be closed to non-participants on this date.
The Dirty Duathlon and the Trail Run Half Marathon and 10K, along with this year's Blankets Creek Duathlon and Six Hour Race to Sunset, have allowed Mountain Goat Adventures to raise $12,300 for SORBA Woodstock thus far in 2012. These funds allow for trail maintenance and construction of new trails at Blankets Creek and Rope Mill Park. Thank you to everyone who has attended one of our events and allowed us to make this happen. We truly appreciate your support!
Happy Trails from Lisa Randall and SORBA Woodstock!!
