There is no finish line….
The Carter Hope Center is a residential recovery, treatment center for drug and alcohol abuse located in Dalton, GA. The center also conducts meetings which service between 300-500 clients per week.
Recovering addict and ultra runner Gregg Ellis has amazed everyone with his commitment to give back to the Carter Hope Center which he credits for helping him beat his addiction and save his life. His fundraising efforts began three years ago, when he completed an indoor Ironman, followed by 103 miles on a treadmill within 24 Hours in 2011. Last year, Gregg ran 5 marathons (131 miles) during 24 hours. This year Gregg is back with a new goal!
Come be a part of history as Gregg attempts to set 2 Guinness Book World Records right here in Dalton, Georgia! Gregg will attempt to run… indoors on a treadmill at Peak Fitness for 48 consecutive hours.
63.01 Miles in 12 hours
251.79 miles in 48 hours
The event has claimed the logo: THERE IS NO FINISH LINE…. which truly says it all! There is no finish line with addiction.
At a time when so many families are affected by drug and alcohol abuse, it is great to see so many people from all walks of life come together to bring hope to our community. Come support such a worthy cause and encourage Gregg as he runs during these 48 Hours. There will be treadmills/elliptical/spin bikes available so that everyone is welcome to participate in the event and help keep him motivated. Registration fee is $25.00 per person and all registered participants will receive a technical event shirt and a “goodie” bag.
