LUMPKIN, GA (WTVM) - The brisk morning air had people lacing up their running shoes in Lumpkin, Georgia on Saturday.

Hundreds of runners including WTVM’s Jason Dennis came out to compete in several marathon races at Providence Canyon State Park.

The race director, Billy Goodson, says there was a running option at the race for all types of runners from beginner to elite.

"We have a lot of different race options, we have a 5k, 10k, a half marathon, and for the past two years a 50k which is 32 miles. So there's a race for everyone and I think the other thing is we're a nonprofit, and we always donate the money to other nonprofits,” Goodson said.

Jason Dennis has been keeping a weekly blog that follows his training and preparation for today's marathon. Click here to check out his marathon blogs.
