The Lake Martin 27 Mile Fun Run Finish - New for 2021
The final 1.9 miles is now a loop, not an out-back.
The Lake Martin 27 Mile Fun Run will start at 6:30 AM along with the 50 Mile and 100 mile. Runners in the 27 will follow the same course as the 50 and 100 mile races for one 25.1 mile loop. After completing the 6.2mile south loop, 27 mile runners will run a 1.9 mile loop to complete the 27 mile race. Twenty-seven mile runners will leave the Cabin Aid Station exactly as they started the race and follow the same course as 50 and 100 miles for exactly 1 mile. You will follow the path away from the cabin, through the woods below Catherine's Market and across the paved road. Continue onto the gravel road and go left at the "Y" as you did before, heading down the hill. Continuing along the carriage path until you reach where 100 & 50 mile runners turn off the gravel road to the right and cross the small wooded foot bridge. (You did this the first lap.) You will continue straight ahead and cross the large "car bridge" ahead. Follow signs saying "27 Mile Straight Ahead - Lap 2." Cross over the auto bridge and continue on the Carriage Path following the shore of the lake. Follow the signs and flags onto a section of single track trails until you return to the "Big Way Carriage Path." Turn right on Big Way and follow the flags back to the Cabin and the 27 Mile Race Finish.
