2015 Sutallee Trace Trail Challenge - May 23, 2015 - Race #3 of the Mountain Goat Adventures Trail Run Series and part of the LaSportiva Mountain Cup Series!
Thanks to the 350 racers who were part of this year's Sutallee Trace Trail Challenge. We hope you enjoyed the event and found it challenging, and perhaps experienced some trails that you didn't know existed. If this was your first trail run, we are glad you gave it a try and hope you are now hooked! Race results and photo links are below:
Come experience a part of Cherokee County that you’ve probably never seen…explore the historic Sutallee Trace as part of the Sutallee Trace Trail Challenge! This beautiful and rugged trail run takes you along scenic ridgelines, in lush creek valleys and along the banks of the Etowah River. Sutallee Trace is thought to have followed old Cherokee Indian pathways and was marked as a major area road of the Cherokee County Map of 1895.
We are excited to announce that the 2015 event will be part of the LaSportiva Mountain Cup Series, as well as the Mountain Goat Adventures Trail Run Series!
Runners may choose between a rugged and challenging 10 mile course and a shorter 4.5 mile course. We will also offer a free half mile kids race for children 10 and under. Beginning and ending at Boling Park in Canton, GA, the venue is very family friendly so bring the kids!
The 2015 event will again benefit Boy Scout Troop 241 for their efforts in building and maintaining the Boling Park Etowah Trail System.
