Dalton Red Carpet 10K 5K 2K Road Race
The 10th Annual Dalton Red Carpet 10K/5K/2K runs along the streets of this northern Georgia city that's often called the "carpet capital of the world" thanks to its plentiful carpeting, dye and home construction industry.
Though the areas around the city are marked by the sight of rolling mountainous terrain and the trees of the Chattahoochee National Forest are off in the distance, the terrain for the race is mostly flat and fast by contrast, as it follows an out-and-back course that starts and finishes in the city of Dalton, which lies just east of the Interstate 75 highway between Atlanta and Chattanooga, Tennessee.
