2012 Lake Burton Fun Run & Duck Tape Regatta

July 4, 2012

Something about the 4th of July makes people want to run! Most people in the south are familiar with the Peachtree Road Race in Atlanta, but we have a couple races in the Rabun County area that have grown to be quite popular…  last weekend’s Rabun Ramble and the upcoming Lake Burton Fun Run.

This will be the 28th year of the 5k Lake Burton Fun Run, and participation is limited to 800 runners and walkers. Sign up early online or at LaPrade’s Marina, and race-day entries can be made at Moccasin Creek State Park. Race time is at 9am on Saturday July 7, 2012. Please visit the Lake Burton Fun Run website for more information about the route, rules, and parking.

The 2nd annual Duck Tape Regatta will be at LaPrade’s Marina where teams start building their boats out of plywood and duct tape at 12:30 pm.  The boat race will be later in the day.  This is a lot of fun, and RE/MAX of Rabun was the inaugural winner last year.  

We are sponsors of this event, and I will be at the  finish line RE/MAX of Rabun tent.  Stop by and say hello!
