The Georgia Death Race is a point-to-point ultramarathon trail race in North Georgia. The race is 68ish miles with close to 40,000 feet of elevation change, starting at Vogel State Park and finishing at Amicalola Falls State Park. Starting the race at 8:00 a.m. allows runners of all speeds to be on top of Duncan Ridge on the Duncan Ridge Trail for the sunrise. From here you will see the sun rise over the back of Brasstown Blad, the highest point in Georgia. With the leaves off the trees the sunrise will light up the surrounding mountains and valleys that make up Northern Georgia. This, in it self, makes it worth it to run the race. The first 8 miles has close to 3,500 feet of elevation change. Including the 2,300 ft climb over 3.8 miles up to the summit of Coosa Bald.
