Lace up your sneakers, lean forward and get ready for the 3rd Annual Tear Drop Half Marathon™! If you’re looking for a fast and scenic half marathon then join us on Sunday, April 30, 2017.

All distances will start on top of Fort Mountain at an elevation near 3000 feet and finish in Chatsworth, Georgia, for an over 2000-foot drop for the Half Marathon. All courses (13.1, 10K, 5K) will be USAT&F certified for those participants that are looking to set a personal record or for a qualifying time at a race elsewhere. Chatsworth is 80 miles from Atlanta, 40 miles from Chattanooga and 10 miles from Dalton.

The race courses are on all paved roads and features 9 miles of 5-10% grade downhill for the 13.1, 5 miles downhill for the 10K and 2 miles for the 5K (which will improve your time :40- 1:20 per mile!) and then a flat to rolling finish. Again this year the Half Marathon will run an out and back on top of the mountain, which runners will encounte several climbs (it's not all downhill). The consensus among runners who have run it both years prefer to have the "added" miles at the top (2015) rather than for the last segment (2014). The scenic route through the Cohutta Wilderness Area welcomes racers of all abilities. 

In addition to the half marathon 10K & 5K, there will be plenty of extras for the runners! Beautiful medals for all finishers and every participant will receive a T-Shirt in addition to post-race food; N. Georgia pulled pork BBQ and veggie hotdogs, and drinks; beer for 21 and over participants! There will also be great raffle prizes for all participants!
