Sadlers Creek Course Description

The course is a 6.6 mile loop with only a half mile section where runners will be double backing. The course climbs 400 Feet per 6 mile loop. (Relatively flat with a few mole hills) From the course you will expect to see Lake Hartwell on several occasions, deer roaming the peninsula, and tall pines towering over the lake! This will be one of your fastest 50ks to date or one of your most enjoyable looped 24 hour runs. If you are a beginner or love the shorter distances we have a 10k and half marathon option. The course will have a series of directional arrows that will be placed at all intersections. Please follow all directional arrows to stay on course. In the event that you make a wrong turn please backtrack to your original spot of confusion.

Our staff is very busy with course marking, timing, packet pickup, and communication with runners, that it does make it hard to prepare some amazing tasty treats in-between laps so feel free to contribute a little slice of heaven if you can!
