Race Director:  David Sanders 


This race started in 1988 as the BASF 10 Miler and has been run continuously since then. In 1995, the race was renamed the Carpet Capital 10 Miler and as one of very few USATF certified 10 mile course in the state of Georgia, holds almost all the state records.  Entrants come mainly from Georgia and surrounding states, but other parts of the country are represented as well.


The course is a modified loop along scenic country roads of NW Georgia. Some moderately are rolling hills. USATF Certified Event #GA09047WC. Run & See Georgia grand prix. Race day registration begins at 8:00 a.m., and the race starts at 9:00 a.m.


Awards will be presented to overall winners (open, master, grandmaster, senior grandmaster), but in lieu of age group awards, all runners who register by November 26 will receive a special ceramic tile commemorating the 30 year history of the 10 Miler.  This race has been a wonderful tradition for many years, and its memories will be relived for years to come.

Ecclesiastes 3 says "There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens," and for the 10 Miler, the season is drawing to a close.  Many thanks to the thousands of runners from literally around the world who have made this such a special event for the past 30 years.
