Event Description

The Motor Motor 5k/10K, hosted by Clayton County Conservation in partnership with the Turkey River Recreational Corridor, offers a “trail mix,” beginning and ending at the Motor Mill historic site

The 10K route runs along the rolling hills of the crushed-lime trail with scenic views of Clayton County’s bucolic fields, forests, and streams. The 5K route features a rugged and challenging adventure through the singletrack and firebreak trails around Motor Mill, with over 900′ of elevation gain/loss to challenge even the sturdiest of trail runners.

Proceeds from this year’s race will go towards the construction of a modern campground at Osborne Park, a project with an estimated cost of $800,000 so… bring a friend or ten!

Whether you’re looking for a good tune-up for the summer racing season,  or just a beautiful setting for an endorphin rush on a Saturday, the Motor Motor 5k/10k has got what you need to welcome the coming spring.
