Run The Gauntlet - North Georgia

Take Up The Gauntlet

Like medieval knights there is chivalry, a sense of pride and the conception of honor in accepting a challenge that requires individual training and exceptional skills.

You can take up The Gauntlet for an adventure designed for enjoyment by motorcyclists and sports car owners. Take the challenge to get bragging rights and be the first to own the t-shirt.

Welcome to our Backyard!

You’ve slain The Dragon, now it is time to run The Gauntlet. You will enjoy scenic roads and overlooks with curves and twists not on your GPS. Ride the roads the locals ride. The Gauntlet will take you 4,784 feet above mean sea level to the highest point in Georgia with views of "forest clouds" and several states on a clear day. We made sure the journey is as good as the ride with refreshing rest stops along the way.

When accepting the challenge you will receive a road map. It's not a race of speed, but of skill in maneuvering through some of the most exciting roads in the Country. There are one hundred and thirty-three miles of smiles ahead for you. You may want to spend the day, a weekend, or a week.
