Únete Cruel Jewel 100
The Chattahoochee National Forest takes its name from the Chattahoochee River whose headwaters begin in the North Georgia mountains. The River and the area were given the name by the English settlers who took the name from the Indians living here. The Cherokee and Creek Indians inhabited North Georgia. In one dialect of the Muskogean languages, Chatta means stone; ho chee, marked or flowered. These marked or flowered stones were in the Chattahoochee River at a settlement near Columbus, Georgia.
The Cruel Jewel 100 is a 105.9 mile foot race deep within the beautiful Chattahoochee National Forest of the North Georgia Mountains. It consists of 95 miles of trails and 11miles of mountain roads. Along your journey from Vogel State Park to Blue Ridge and back, you will experience tough, and sometimes technical, single track trails, ferns and old growth poplar trees, steep ascents and even steeper descents, an historic steel bridge spanning the Toccoa River, the Dragon’s Spine, lush green hardwood forests, rocks, roots and ridge lines … all of which will be passed before you reach your final destination. And as a bonus we have thrown in 33,000 feet of gain and 33,000 feet of loss just to keep it interesting.
Destacable en la ruta
The course is predominantly an out and back (you run the same trail in both directions) but there is a 6 mile loop they must do twice. The first one begins at AS 8 (Deep Gap) near mile 42. This also serves as aid stations 9, 11, and 12. Aid station 10 is the turn-around point. Runners are supposed to go left, check in at the aid station before retracing their steps for a few hundred yards and running the loop once, then check in again at the aid station before heading to the turnaround point. Participants then repeat this process on the return.
