Runners, do you think you have what it takes to descend more than 600 feet to the bottom of a rock quarry before you begin your climb out? If you think you can “dig deep” and challenge yourself to complete this feat, Quarry Crusher Run Atlanta, sponsored by the Vulcan Materials Company, is the race for you! The 3.7-mile route descends to the bottom of Vulcan’s Norcross quarry and offers unbelievable views of the quarry with every step. The best part? The May 4 race benefits our students! Vulcan will donate proceeds to the GCPS Foundation to support Meadowcreek HS, Radloff MS, Meadowcreek ES, and Boys and Girls Clubs of Gwinnett County.
Registration for the Quarry Crusher— from the top to the bottom of the quarry and back— costs $40, and a Double Crusher (7.4 miles) is twice the challenge for $50. New this year, folks can experience the quarry with half the steps for $40. For the Half Crusher, run or walk to the bottom of the quarry then catch a van ride back to the top! Discounts are offered for GCPS employees, students, active and retired military personnel, and first responders. The race is open to runners and walkers, ages 12 and older.
Register online today for this unique race, one of just nine events held around the country at Vulcan Materials locations. (The other runs are held in Alabama, California, Illinois, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia.)
Can’t make it to the quarry on race day but still want to support the event and GCPS? Sleep in and donate online!
