Description

The 39th Annual Possum Trot 10K takes place on a flat, fast and scenic course along the banks of the Chattahoochee River in Roswell, GA.  This is a point-to-point course with beautiful views of the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area.  The race starts 1/2 mile west of the entrance to the Chattahoochee Nature Center (CNC) on Willeo Road, turns onto Azalea Road and loops back once reaching Roswell Road/Alpharetta Hwy.  The race ends at the entrance of the Nature Center.  The event also includes a post-race awards party at CNC's Ben Brady Lakeside Pavilion which includes music, give-aways and awards in 13 age groups.  This is a qualifier for the Official AJC Peachtree Road Race Qualifying Event.

This is a fun, summer run and an Atlanta tradition for 39 years.  The race is limited to 1,500 runners so register early to ensure your spot!
