Sat April 9, 2016 Athens, GA 30602 US Directions



Stegeman Coliseum
100 Smith Street
Athens, GA US 30602



Due to another race, there will be road closures Saturday morning. In order to eliminate long wait times, we recommend you do NOT take exit 7 on the loop as College Station will be blocked. We instead recommend taking exit 8 on the loop, taking Oak Street towards downtown until you hit Broad, continue down Broad, pass the UGA Arch on your left, then take a left down S. Lumpkin St. Continue down S. Lumpkin St. until you pass the Georgia Center on your left, then turn left down Carlton St. The Stegeman Coliseum will be on your right. Turn right just before Stegeman down Sanford Dr. and our tents will be set up on the left in a grassy area. There are several lots surrounding Stegeman available for parking.

We realize this a longer route but this is the best route to avoid road blocks. Please heed this advice for the safety of other runners and the UGA Police Department. Again, sign in starts at 8:30 am with the race starting at 9:00 am.Thank you for your understanding, we can't wait to see you and all of your country costumes on Saturday!
