Hey friends! We’re Team Baker and we took over the GA Jewel in 2016. We’re not really race directors and we’re not really in the running business… but we ARE into giving back to a community of people who have changed our lives. We have other careers and obligations and in the midst of that crazy, we find tremendous joy in creating a great race experience for our running friends.

Shuttle (100 milers this doesn't apply to you!)
here's zero parking at the 50, 35 or 18 mile starting lines. No, we're not kidding. Those are also point to point courses and we think it's super great to finish where you parked your car. So we shuttle all 50, 35 & 18 milers to the starting line...from the finish line. You follow that?
ace morning you'll park your car at the Dalton Convention Center. This is also the finish line. You'll jump into a school bus where you'll be transported back in time as you drive the country roads of Georgia and arrive at the starting line. Good news, there are bathrooms for any last minute evacuations.
ou'll RUN BACK TO the Dalton Convention Center for your finish.
