Course
:

Mixture of grass and dirt paths. 3 loops (1 right loop, 2 left loops).
Other Notes:

The Cobb County Corps Property is open for running and inspection the month of August. The land is used for hunting prior to 10 a.m. after September 10th. Contact John Purcell (John.Purcell@cobbcounty.org) for a special use permit for practices or events at the park.



Kennesaw Mountain is hosting a meet at this same location on 9/15/18 called the Big Peach Mustang Stampede (ga.milesplit.com/meets/308837/info#.WuesAOgbM2w). This will allow any Area teams who are not in Cobb County to have a chance to preview the course.


Port-a-Johns will be onsite starting Tuesday 10/23/18 in the afternoon. Gentlemen should use the port-a-johns, not the woods.

There will be a designated team tent area that will be marked off the day of the meet. Please do not set-up anywhere outside of the marked area.



If there is too much rain, all teams and spectators must be bussed or will need to walk in from Frey Elementary and Durham Middle School. This will be determined the week of the race, but please make plans ahead of time.



It is recommended to bring bug spray and to not go into the woods.
Each team must bring their own water, there is not a water source at the race course
