Race Series Mission:
● To raise awareness of the benefits the Firefly Trail will bring to area residents and visitors by providing an annual series of running/walking events in communities along the Trail corridor.

Race Series Overview:
● The race series will consist of four events providing running/walking opportunities in towns formerly linked by the historic Athens Branch of the Georgia Railroad. This 39-mile transportation corridor is being converted to a non-motorized rail-trail between Athens and Union Point. A safe, off-road path, the Firefly Trail will connect three counties and eight communities, offer health benefits, boost economies and bring people together.
