Race moving to Fall 2020

At CNC, what we do is guided by our mission of connecting people to nature. We also have an obligation to the well-being our community, our members and visitors, and our staff. At this time, out of an abundance of caution, we will be postponing the 42nd Annual Possum Trot until fall 2020. We are taking these precautionary measures to keep our staff, community and those most vulnerable safe and healthy. Runners that have already registered for the event will receive an email with all updated information regarding the race once a new date has been scheduled. If you should have any questions or concerns, please contact Tamara Kinmon.


>> Registration fees include: free admission to CNC all day race day, access to the post-race party, and race T-shirt.

>> Great swag in a re-usable bag to the first 400 runners.

>> Participants will also receive FREE PHOTOS from TrueSpeedPhoto.com.

>> All proceeds from the race benefit the Chattahoochee Nature Center’s environmental education programs focused on the Chattahoochee River and its watershed as well as CNC’s wildlife rehabilitation efforts.
