The Silver Comet Marathon


The Silver Comet Marathon is named after the train called the Silver Comet that would ferry people from Atlanta to Anniston, Alabama. The course affords some of the same views of those early train travelers and while you don't have to travel as fast as the Silver Comet did, you are expected to complete the marathon within 5:30 hours. Costumes are encouraged, since the race takes place on or near Halloween.
