Co-owner Rachel Hopkins is bringing a dream to reality by building a dedicated cross country course at the Piedmont Preserve. Rachel has a long history in cross country from top ranked athlete, to DI and DIII Coach, to Club Founder and and Meet Director. Creating awesome cross courses has always been a passion which was initially realized when she designed and built UGA's first ever home cross country course. From there, she designed the course at UCSC, the University of the Bahamas and for the Piedmont Series.
We will host several meets and community runs this fall. The course is also available to rent. If you are looking for a venue for your next meet, just let me know! The schedule to date follows. Please, contact me for details and check back for updates.

Amazingly, this oasis is located in town off of Chase St. and the loop. It’s within walking distance from several neighborhoods and easily accessible for all of Athens.
