Brief Overview

The General 100™ is a 4- or 7- member team running relay covering 100 miles of beautiful, challenging terrain beginning in Kennesaw, Georgia. The course primarily follows scenic country roads winding its way through North Georgia’s historic sites to the finish line in Ringgold, Georgia.

The race route faithfully parallels the railroad from Kennesaw to Ringgold following the route of the famous “Great Locomotive Chase.” On April 12th, 1862, Union soldiers stole “the General” locomotive and several train cars in Big Shanty (Kennesaw) and headed north for Chattanooga. They were quickly pursued with a separate locomotive, by hand-car and finally on foot by the General’s resourceful conductor.
