Over 1100 local and regional runners joined us for last year’s edition! This is a very fast course; mostly flat and with a .75 mile downhill finish! One of the fastest 5K & 10K races in Georgia and a great Peachtree Road Race seeded qualifier for both distances! 39% of our runners have qualified for Time Group B (5K=<24:28, 10K=<50:59) or better over the last 4 years! 87% who ran the 10K had a negative split (2nd half faster than the 1st) by an average of 1 minute and 37 seconds. That's why we call it the Downhill Finish!
This year we'll have the Fastest Last Mile prize for both the 10K and 5K male and female. $50 gift cards for those that complete the last mile with fastest split time. Overall male/female, masters male/female for both 10K & 5K. Plus a 5K split for 10K runners.
Also our race is one of the last chances to get a Peachtree Road Race qualification before registration closes in mid-March to get your results submitted for corral placement.
