Georgia > USMC Toys for Tots Oconee Heritage Park Trail Half Marathon
Farmington, GA

   

Date

Sunday, November 7, 2010


 
Event Details

Runners get a chance to trek through the trails, hills and streams of Farmington's Oconee Heritage Park at the United States Marine Corps Toys For Tots Trail Half Marathon, which marks just its fourth annual running in the fall of 2010, just a short drive south of the city of Athens and the University of Georgia, home of the Georgia Bulldogs college football team.

The course for the race unfolds entirely within the bounds of the park, whose 364 acres encompass wooded forest areas as well as wide-open fields, single-track trails and stream crossings, and portions of the nearby Appalachee River. Located just off Highway 441 south of Farmington, the park offers what race organizers call a "very technical trail run" around two loops for the course -- the first is a seven-mile loop and the second is a 6.1-mile loop. There will be a water and aid station available at the start and finish for each loop of the race, but none along the course.

The time limit for runners to complete the race will be four hours for both loops combined, or two hours for runners who choose to run only the first loop. The race will start at 11:00 AM, and will benefit both the USMC Toys For Tots Campaign as well as the Athens Area Habitat for Humanity.


Race Weather & Climate

Located about 16 miles south of Athens, the home of the University of Georgia, the rural community of Farmington typically experiences mild to moderately cool (and sometimes cold) weather conditions in the mid-fall season, and relatively even rainfall throughout the year. In November, average monthly temperatures range between 65°F and 42°F, while rainfall totals average around 4.12 inches for the month.


Fees

$25 if registered before October 27, 2010
$30 after Oct. 27 through the day of the race
