Series Mission: To raise awareness of the benefits the Firefly Trail will bring to area residents and visitors by providing an annual series of running/walking events in communities along the Firefly Trail corridor. For more information about the Firefly Trail please visit the FIREFLY TRAIL WEBSITE.
Series Overview: The Race Series consists of four in-person and virtual events providing running/walking opportunities in towns formerly linked by the historic Athens Branch of the Georgia Railroad. This 39-mile transportation corridor is being converted to a non-motorized rail-trail between Athens and Union Point. A safe, off-road path, the Firefly Trail will connect three counties and eight communities, offer health benefits, boost economies, and bring people together.
Extended Registration: For the love of running, we are extending the Firefly Trail Race Series registration through the month of February! You may register for the remaining 3 races in the series.
What a deal! You can run the remaining three great races in towns with current or future Firefly Trail sections for only $17.50 for each race, no shirt, and for only $22.50 for each race with a shirt. Eace race has a virtual option. Virtual runners are not eligible for t-shirts as t-shirts will not be mailed or delivered.
