Atlanta’s only organized memorial run up historical Kennesaw Mountain. Commemorating the 42 Georgia Army National Guard’s fallen Soldiers lost during the Global War on Terrorism 2001-Present.

You are invited to join us together with some of The Georgia National Guard’s finest in participating on Saturday, September 30th 2017 at 7:30 a.m. for the opening ceremony and ASSAULT up Kennesaw Mountain starting at 8:00am.  The Awards Ceremony will be at the Top of the Mountain at 9:00am.

All proceeds benefit the GA National Guard Family Support Foundation, Inc.

While the ASSAULT is up historical Kennesaw Mountain, the assembly area and ceremony will be at Grace Community Church.  The finish line is at the top of the mountain and racers will then use a short cut to get back the church parking lot. 

No vehicles will be allowed to go to the top of the mountain for the Awards Ceremony. So, if you have friends or loved ones that want to meet you at the top. Make sure they are aware of this, and they plan to move up the trail to the top.
