Schedule of Events

The address of the start/finish is Montaluce Winery, 946 Via Montaluce, Dahlonega, GA 30533. Please follow arrow signs to start/finish once you turn into the Montaluce property.


4:00 pm to 8:00 pm – Race number and t-shirt pickup (near the pool at Montaluce – also the location of the Start/Finish)

Please Note: There is no day-of registration or distance changes. All registrations, distance changes and transfers must be completed by September 14th at 8 pm. If you have questions, changes, or need to speak with the Race Director, you will need to do so on Friday evening (or earlier via email – preferred). We will not be able to accommodate any changes on Saturday morning.

Mandatory pre-race briefing to racers at 6:30 pm on Friday, Sept. 18th near the Start/Finish. The meeting is mandatory for all 100 mile racers and highly suggested for 50 mile racers. You are responsible for knowing all information given in the pre-race meeting even if you do not attend.


5:00 am – Parking lot opens

5:30 am to 6:20 am – Race number and t-shirt pickup (NOTE – ONLY pickup, NO DISTANCE CHANGES, NEW REGISTRATIONS OR TRANSFERS CAN BE ACCOMMODATED AT THIS TIME. This was added as a courtesy to our local riders who would prefer to drive up in the morning)

6:20 am – Drop bag cutoff – Drop bags will leave the venue promptly at 6:20 am…if you miss the cutoff you will need to carry your drop items or rely on the aid stations for fuel. If you plan to check in on Saturday morning, I highly recommend showing up with your drop bags pre-packed so you don’t miss getting them here on time. Gallon size ziplocs are fine.

7:00 am – 100 mile race start with neutral rollout
7:30 am – 50 mile race start with neutral rollout

Post-race meal at the finish line: 12-7:30pm

All racers must complete the entire 50 or 100 mile course and be in by 7:30pm to have an official finish time. There will be time cutoffs at the aid stations to ensure you can make it back by 7:30pm.

Awards will be presented near the finish line when the top 5 finishers in each class have crossed the finish line. Approximate timing for awards may be around 1pm for the 50 mile race and around 4pm for the 100 mile race but this may change.
