Course Description: The Rock Ranch, located in The Rock, Georgia is a 1250-acre cattle ranch, owned by Chick-fil-A founder S. Truett Cathy. The purpose of The Rock Ranch is "uniting families with the land and each other." The course transports runners across scenic countryside with moderate levels of terrain and elevation. As the name suggests, there are many large granite rocks along the course. The challenging course at The Rock Ranch is a 5k loop across "real" country. About 40 percent of the course offers shade and the course has equal uphill and downhill segments (with a long downhill stretch toward the finish). Competitors will run across manicured lawn, through hay fields, through hardwood forests, along a creek, past: ponds, horses, cows, donkeys, corn fields, Conestoga Wagons, a locomotive train, a windmill and other unique scenery. This course will provide a challenging and fun venue for both competition and conditioning. Visit www.therockranch.com for driving directions.
