The course was mostly rolling hills and flats as advertised. There were two or three bigger hills which required me to get up out of the saddle but very few of these, so that was nice. The course was well-marked with mileage every few miles and volunteers at every turn. Road hazards were painted red and the volunteers alerted us to any rough areas or sharp turns.

I didn't wear my heart rate monitor, but at points I could tell that I was redlining.
The run was also rolling hills, but instead of an out an back course (which has ups but also the same amount of downs) you run up into the town of Acworth which is necessarily higher in elevation than the lake. So, it is a net uphill run. It was a HARD run. The course was pretty and there were volunteers and spectators at nearly every turn, so part was nice.
