The event features the headlined 5K run; a 1K walk/fun run; and a free Tot Trot for children ages 5 and under.
Awards are presented to male and female open and masters top finishers and top threes in their respective age categories. And all 1K walk/fun run and tot trot finishers get a ribbon.
All events are rain or shine and will start and finish at the Marietta Square, 1 Cherokee Street, Marietta, Georgia 30060. Parking is free in public decks and designated parking lots.
Participants and those who’ll be out to cheer them on can expect a day of fun-filled family activities.
The Veterans Memorial 5K Run - Honoring Heroes Past, Present, Fallen also doubles as an #AJC #PeachtreeRoadRace official qualifier. So serious runners looking to improve their position or to just become eligible to get a coveted Peachtree Road Race slot can do so while participating in this history-making event.
Phantom Runner registrants who can’t make the race but who still wish to sponsor special veterans that honorably served will also receive t-shirts just as though they finished it.
All proceeds raised by this event go toward on-going care and support of Georgia soldiers, veterans and their families where it matters most - right here at home.
