SSTS is thrilled to announce the inaugural Bucky’s Boot Top Prohibition Trail Run –7K/14K/21K. The race will be held on Saturday, April 3, 2021 at 8AM EST to benefit The Chattahoochee River Keeper. This race is capped at 50 runners due to limited parking availability as mandated by the State Park. If this race sells out, there will be NO additional spots sold.
This is a loop race on the Boot Top boot-shaped “Loop” starting at the east side of the Dowdell’s Knob overlook area onto the Pine Mountain trail headed eastbound. Runners will take a left onto the 1.3-Mile-long Boot Top Trail that will cut back up and over Dowdell’s Knob Road leading back over to the Pine Mountain Trail towards west of Dowdell’s Knob. Runners will go left onto the Pine Mountain trail headed back to complete the Boot Top “Loop”.
This race is a nice change from the usual ol’ trail races around FDR and we know you will want to join us in running ‘round and ‘round the 4.3-mile boot shaped loop running from the law like the Prohibitionists in the ‘30’s! This loop promises a super fun mix of rocky, rooty, and rolling singletrack. If you stop or slow down long enough you will enjoy one of the many waterfalls in FDR, tons of wildlife, the memorial rock at the 1953 plane crash site, and the infamous elephant rock along the way back to the finish line. So come on out to the “east end” of FDR State Park, enjoy a loop or or two or three with friends, and hang out afterwards overlooking the tremendous views of the “Valley” from the beautiful Dowdell’s Knob overlook! (Rumor has it that lots of folks love this spot so much that they get married here – including one of your RD’s!!)
The course: 1 loop for 7K, 2 loops for 14K, and 3 loops for 21K.
