“This is the course for the H9 50 mile event.”— Brad Goodridge
Race - Aug 10, 2019
The race starts at Vogel State Park, taking the normal CCW route on the Coosa Backcountry Trail to Calf Stomp and getting on FS-108 to the Fire Pit Aid station. From there runners will go up the back side up and over Coosa to the Wolf Pen Gap aid station. From WPG, you'll run on the DRT road to another forest road leading to Yellow Mountain. But first passing an unmanned water stop and the famous Lipstick and Lugnuts aid station.
Once over Yellow Mountain, you'll do a little bushwhacking to Mulky Gap before getting back on the DRT heading to Fish Gap aid station. From FG, you'll head out to the Green Loop, Nights Creek Aid station, a lot of bushwhacking over another mountain returning the Nights Creek AS before heading back to Fish Gap. From Fish Gap, you're back on the DRT bound for the finish at Vogel State Park with another stop at the Fire Pit aid station before the Coosa climb. On the downside of Coosa at Calf Stomp, you'll get back on forest road 108 in the opposite direction heading for GA-180 and the final .9 mile trail to Vogel.
