Course: Winding through the breathtakingly scenic grounds of Tellus Science Museum, this course is not only a mixture of manicured grass and wooded, hard-packed-dirt trail but also can be viewed by spectators for well over 50% of the race! Less than 1% is on pavement.

T-Shirts: Customized T-Shirts & Shaved Ice (Yummy!) will be available for purchase.



Parking
is Free. Donations to the Cartersville Cross Country program will gladly be accepted, however.
