The 2018 Georgia Polar Bear run will once again start at Atlanta Motorsports Park, (20 Duck Thurmond Rd, Dawsonville, GA 30534), and will be raising money for the ALS Foundation.
This year’s 80 mile route will end up at Barnsley Gardens in Adairsville GA. Note your calendar now because you won’t want to miss it!
Thanks to AMP for opening their doors to allow a little warming up before we take to the roads. AMS has a large room for us to meet in prior to the drive, and facilities available for a pre- departure pit stop. We will be wheels up at about 9:30 and the drive will take just under two hours, putting us in right at lunch time.
