Assault on Mt. Currahee descends on Cornelia Saturday


Clarkesville Street will be closed from Martin Luther King Jr. Drive to North Main 

Some 200 cyclists are expected to descend on Habersham County Saturday, February 25 for the start of the Assault on Mt. Currahee. Registration begins at 7 a.m. at the Historic Train Depot in Cornelia. The race starts at 10 a.m. from the Depot parking lot.

A police escort will lead cyclists out of town through city streets, along Dicks Hill Parkway through to the Lake Russell Wildlife Management Area.

The 36-mile gravel grinder covers approximately 9 miles of asphalt and 30 miles of gravel enroute to the top of Currahee Mountain in Toccoa.

“The slopes and pitches of Mt Currahee are as beautiful as they are challenging; pushing both racers and soldiers to emerge fitter, faster, and tougher. The history and scenery of the Georgia wilds make an epic journey out of a day on the bike.” — Gordon Wadsworth, Expert racer, Middlesboro, Kentucky

Clarkesville Street from Martin Luther King Jr. Drive to North Main Street will be closed from 8 a.m. – 3 p.m. The Depot parking lot will also be closed.
