Course & Timing
We're just outside of Atlanta in beautiful Marietta, and there's not much that anyone can call flat & fast. The course is a single loop and we'll be chip timing.A Note about the Host & Beneficiary

Red Hare brews four year-round beers: Gangway IPA, Long Day Lager, Cotton Tail Pale Ale, SPF 50/50 and as of January 2017, Gem City Classic in addition to over 12 seasonal or small batch releases per year.

Austen's Army Foundation
We are a nonprofit organization located outside of Atlanta dedicated to spreading awareness of rhabdomyosarcoma, and raising funds to support research earmarked specifically toward treatments for this disease that minimize toxicity to patients and maximize success rates. In the most basic of terms, rhabdomyosarcoma is a type of sarcoma. Sarcomas are cancers that develop from connective tissues in the body, such as muscles, fat, bones, the linings of joints, or blood vessels. Rhabdomyosarcoma is the most common type of soft tissue sarcoma in children.
Austen was diagnosed with embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma in 2017 at the age of 4. This is a disease we didn't even know existed. Within a few weeks, she had spent numerous days and nights at the hospital, undergone a full hysterectomy and began an intense 24-week protocol of chemotherapy.
Your contributions will enable us to help raise awareness of rhabdomyosarcoma and fund valuable research efforts into treatment protocols.
