WELCOME TO THE SITE OF THE GEORGIA JEWEL 100 MILE RACE

CELEBRATING THE 4th YEAR OF THE EVENT

The organizers and volunteers look forward to an amazing weekend at the end of September. We are working hard to present an event that is worthy of all of the hard training that you put in.

The Georgia Jewel 100 and 35 mile events are out and back races, while the 50 mile event is a point to point course. All three are run on the pristine Georgia Pinhoti trail. The 100 and 35 mile races start and finish at the Dalton Convention Center, while the 50 mile race starts at the 100 mile turn-around point (Gore Subligna Road). The finish point for all 3 events is at the Dalton Convention Center. This rugged course on North West Georgia's Pinhoti Trail will escort you across five scenic mountains and along the narrow crests of several ridges of the Chattahoochee National Forest. This mostly single track trail is technically rocky and rooty but is well maintained by our friends at NWGA SORBA. There are several stream crossings to be experienced during the race. The lowest elevation on the course is 770 feet and the highest elevation of 1788 feet will reveal the views from the top of Dug Mountain. Because of the out and back nature of the course, runners will both climb 16,053 feet and descend 16,053 feet during the 100 mile distance. The course consists of roughly 70 miles of single track trail, 21.5 miles of jeep road and 8.5 miles of paved road. Tenacity will allow you a final downhill finish to a unique award for your ultra-achievement!
