Fall 2012 Athletic Events & Races

Friday, September 21st, 2012

Come out and enjoy the best weather among the best surroundings here at Lake Lanier Islands Resort

It’s no wonder why there are so many more races in the South during the late Summer, Fall, and early winter months. It’s simply THE BEST time of year to not only be outside, but be active as well.

It’s not too hot and it’s not too cold. It’s just right for a little outdoor athleticism! We’ve compiled a list of our upcoming races being held here at Lake Lanier Islands and we hope that you’ll come out and enjoy not only the weather, but the chance to support physical fitness and wellness. In fact, we believe wellness should always be a top priority, which is why we constantly work to provide wellness programs for our corporate travelers staying at Legacy Lodge, as well as an extensive selection of both hiking and walking trails encompassing every one of our Islands. See the list of all our trails and download a map.
