Looking for a picturesque and, at times, grueling run on a Saturday morning next month? The Meadowcreek cluster and Vulcan Materials has just the event.
At 8 a.m. May 6, Vulcan Materials Company will host its second annual Vulcan Materials Quarry Crusher Run. Proceeds from the race benefit the Gwinnett County Public Schools Foundation Fund, specifically supporting schools in the Meadowcreek cluster.
The Vulcan Materials Quarry Crusher Run is similar to other events held in six cities across the country, running events that began in Columbia, S.C.
It’s a 3.7-mile race that takes runners from the top of the quarry to the bottom and then back to the top.
Participants will descend more than 600 feet on the way down experiencing a grade incline on average of 10 percent.
