Welcome to RippedTents

Join The Adventure

We’re an enthusiastic group of individuals brought together by a common passion. Have a look at what we’ve got coming up, and if you’re interested in joining the adventures simply get in touch today.


In the summer of 2020 with all races cancelled, a restless group of runners banded together for a one off 57 mile fun run with over 15,000 feet of vertical gain. After an exhilaratingly exhausting day watching the sunrise and the sunset together, they realized they didn't want the fun to end and RippedTents was born.


Founded in 2020 and based in Georgia, RippedTents is a devoted running community made up of enthusiastic individuals who enjoy sharing jokes, snacks and long days in the mountains.  Passion and enthusiasm go hand-in-hand with everything we do. You’re welcome to browse our site to learn more about our group and the upcoming adventures we have planned. If you see an event that you want to be a part of - please reach out! Our door is always open, no matter the experience level. We are proud to bring together people. Come join us at our next event — we’d love to share all that RippedTents has to offer. The mountains are for everyone and we cannot wait to see you out there!

Happy Trails.
