Set among the trails and hills of Fort Yargo State Park near Winder, a small town in northern Georgia that lies about 50 miles northeast of Atlanta, the Xterra Georgia Thrill in the Hills trail races take runners on an out-and-back loop course around the Marbury Creek Reservoir in the middle of the park. Those running the half marathon will make one loop around the park, while those running the full marathon will make two loops. Note that the mileage below does not capture every twist and turn within the woods; the course will measure out to the half marathon distance, organizers say.
Note: The course map above provides the approximate route for the race. Though every effort has been made to ensure its accuracy, changes are sometimes made to race routes due to weather conditions, road closures or other circumstances that can require a course to be changed.
