The race results are in! 2015 Soque River Ramble – Race Results
A total of 172 runners and walkers passed over the finish line in the 2015 Soque River Ramble 6K Run & Walk held in the Batesville community of Habersham County. Including volunteers and spectators, an estimated crowd of well over 200 were treated to a stellar morning in the mountains with ideal weather conditions for the event. Crossroads Cafe provided great refreshments and the Tallulah River Bluegrass trio helped create the right ambiance for the beautiful setting on the Soque River.
We look to have photos of the event later this week. Stay tuned!
