Event comments:

This is an awesome event. The US Army Rangers at Camp Frank D. Merrill, Dahlonega, GA. hold this race in conjunction with their Annual Open House. It's a great opportunity to see some of America's finest warriors, put on live demonstrations for the public. I highly recomend this one. Other activities include: Fallen Ranger Memorial Dedication, Mountain Bike Duathlon, Mountain Bike Race, 5K Race, and 1-mile Fun Run.
