SPECIAL GUESTS: In 2007, Ross Mason was training to compete in the New Zealand Ironman when he was tragically paralyzed in a bicycle accident. In 2012, Ignacio Montoya had just completed his ROTC training and was weeks away from being commissioned in the Air Force with a highly coveted pilot slot when he was tragically paralyzed in a motorcycle accident. Both Ross and Ignacio will be at the race to greet/meet everyone and personally thank you for your participation.
UNIQUE VENUE: Madison is featured on Georgia's Antebellum Trail, and is designated as one of America's historic heartland cities. It was voted the "#1 Small Town in America" by Travel Holiday Magazine and most recently by Budget Travel Magazine as one of the "Top 16 Most Picturesque Villages in the World". Madison is Georgia's "authentic Southern town," with an array of local dining options, more than 45 specialty shops and more than 160 antique dealers. Just one hour east of Atlanta on I-20, Madison is the perfect day trip! Bring the entire family for a fun-filled day running for a great cause, playing in Madison Town Park and touring Madison's many historical sights and homes. There will be millions of bubbles, face painting, corn hole, ladder ball, giant bubble makers and a live DJ for the entire family to enjoy!
HOTEL DISCOUNT: James Madison Inn is offering a special rate to our participants that would like to stay in Madison the night before. For your convenience, the beautiful Jameson Inn is located right next to Madison Town Park where the race and after-party will be. To make a reservation, please call 706-453-9135.
