The weather will be perfect this Saturday for the Ninth Annual Soque River Ramble. We ordered extra t-shirts and invite you to join us and register at the event. So load up the family and drive to the Marlan Wilbanks Farm, 860 Old Chimney Mountain Road, Batesville (Clarkesville) Georgia (directions to the farm)
1K Fun Run – 8:30 AM – A great out and back run for kids or warm-up for adults and seasoned runners! Take a jog or sprint down Old Chimney Mountain Road over the Left Fork Soque River and enjoy the crisp October mountain air.
6K Run & Walk – 9:00 AM – The main event! Get ready to start on the bridge at the site of the river restoration project for the 3.75 mile jaunt through the river valleys that merge in this rural community known as Batesville. Firemen will be stationed at each highway turn to ensure your safety on the route. You’ll find a water table after the challenging climb up the hill to the Batesville crossroads. Be welcomed and congratulated back at the finish line where you’ll be served ice cold bottled water, fresh muffins, and treated to bluegrass tunes. Stay for the award ceremony afterwards for locally made pottery and great door prizes. (Run and Walk Map)
