Event Day Information

Race Route

Check out our 5K Route!   This 5K course is a Peachtree Qualifier with an overall net drop and a downhill finish.

Each intersection will be staffed by an off-duty Atlanta Police Officer. The streets will be opened immediately following the last runner/walker. When the crowd thins out, traffic will be allowed to cross streets when the officers determine it is safe to do so.

 

Walkers

Watch for signs to the Walker Start Lineup. Over 50% of event participants will be walkers. For the safety of all participants, we will follow traditional running etiquette at the start with all walkers lining up behind the runners. On the course, walkers should stay to the right and follow instructions of race officials.
