Grand Prix Series Distance Score Points:


Davis Camp Pavilion, 171 Magnolia Street, Haralson, GA.

Located across the street from the Haralson Baptist Church (as a point of reference should you see the church first). You should park at the Head Start Center located less than 100 yards from the pavilion.

For bearings, Haralson is about 40 miles south of downtown Atlanta.

The majority of the loops that will be used for the event is actually in neighboring Senoia.

Pavilion accommodations

The Davis Camp Pavilion has eight large picnic tables beneath a large overhead roof. Runners will be assigned a table to set up their gear (probably four runners to each table). There are two restrooms (men and women), electrical outlets, overhead lights and grills. Each lap will start and end at the entrance to the pavilion so that your gear, etc. can be readily available.

Course Description:

Aid Station

We also have volunteers preparing and/or delivering hot meals approximately every 8 hours. A 'menu' will be made available at the start of the event.


There will be volunteers at all time counting laps, refilling snacks and fluids and assisting the runners the entire 60 hours of the event which you'll get to know them during the course of the weekend.

Other volunteers may be around helping thruout the event's 60-hour duration.

Rules for Participants

(These will be reviewed before the race begins. Should you start at any time other than 6 a.m. Friday you will need to see Ken or Antonio if you have any questions.)

There will be an informational meeting and 'meet and greet' at 6:30 a.m. on Friday, October 21 inside the pavilion. Everyone is encouraged to attend. You may want to get there a bit earlier to set up your assigned area and get acquainted with the pavilion's amenities.
