Tranquility Lake Trail Race - 3 & 6 Miles
A Beautiful First Race in the Trail Series
This will be the first races in the Southeastern Trail Series. The race starts at the Redbud Pavilion near the BMX Track. Just follow the signs. The course is gentle with only one easy hill starting at the shores of Tranquility Lake and climbing for about 1/2 mile before dropping down to Maggie's Glen on the Yellow Trail. Cross the creek at Maggie's and head to the left along the White Trail and then down the Cabin Trail back to the start finish area. Make a short loop to the right around Tranquility Road before returning to the Start/Finish and the aid station, finish for the 3 mile and end of first lap for the 6 mile. Six mile runners repeat the trail around the lake and back to the Finish.
Don't forget about the $5 fee to enter Oak Mountain State Park. Exact change helps.
