Please keep in mind this isn’t a 25k race or  100 mile race ! It’s 34 Hours ! Go longer and further than ever before- This is the reason this event was created ! If you are attempting your first 50K and get done of Friday, come back saturday morning and add more miles. If you reach 100 miles – keep going to 125 !

Please do not go by your watch for miles. this is a trap of looped races. last week at Across The Years I ended up with 105 miles on a certified course.

Please remember all Yeti events are cupless. Bring a reusable cup and a camp cup for broth.

Trash: Please bag and take out any trash you or your crew generate outside of the Yeti HQ. Please don’t overload park trash cans and leave an unsightly mess for other park visitors to look at in this beautiful historic space.

Bathrooms: We will have portables near the start/finish and there’s also an awesome bathroom at the loop start/finish at the park offices. Please do your part in keeping the restrooms clean. One of the reasons the park wanted us back is all of you kept the bathrooms and grounds cleaner than the busuest of days. Thank you all for being good stewards of the GA State Parks .

Refund Policy

As a runner it’s inevitable that you’re going to register for a race that at some point later on you’re unfortunately not going to be able to start for one reason or another. It happens to all of us, especially as race registrations need to open months in advance of the races themselves, and life happens during those interim months: Injuries, work, family emergencies, etc. We assure you we get it; we really do. And we strive to be as understanding and cooperative as we practically and financially can.
But just because the race hasn’t happened yet doesn’t mean we haven’t already incurred significant expenses related to that race. We pay taxes on the income from the entry fees; we pay for permits, insurance, and supplies (including race shirts, buckles and other awards) For all of these reasons and more we cannot offer refunds, deferrals or transfers.
