Franklin County High School is proud to host the 3RD annual Franklin County Pridelands Invitational. The course is the sight of the 8 AAA Region Championships and has been called one of the best new courses in Georgia. Our trail is all grass with one of the states most challenging layouts, featuring a wide open starting field traveling into constantly rolling hills, and wide open lanes to race on. If you are looking for a course to test your athletes abilities, this is the race for you. Spectators and coaches will have access to almost 100% of the course to view each race. This year we are allowing the first 20 teams to enter in each division.

We are located in the beautiful foothills of Northeast Georgia, a little more than an hour from North Atlanta, and 45 minutes from Athens and Helen, Ga. We are only an hour south of Greenville, S.C.  We have plenty of parking adjacent to the course and over flow parking at the High School.

There is plenty of space to put tents. Fast Feet Timing will be providing electronic chip timing for the meet. Each race will be timed and scored. The course will be open Friday evening from 5:00pm until 7:00pm. The course is located on High Road directly behind Franklin County High School.
