About the Race
In the course of running events, it has become necessary for we, the runners of North Georgia, to choose our own race.
We have the inalienable right to sleep later and stay closer to home.
We yearn to avoid crowded MARTA trains and easily find a parking space.
We cry for the mercy of a level running ground.
We run in pursuit of happiness: a soft tri-blend cotton race t-shirt.
We will establish a new tradition.
We will promote health through running.
We, the runners of North Georgia, can count the blessings of having a local race.
Your race registration will include a cool race t-shirt, We The Runners Commemorative Finisher Medal (all distances) , No guarantee of T-Shirt if you register after 6/25
This year proceeds from We The Runners Half Marathon, 10k/5k will benefit Family Promise of Forsyth County.
About Family Promise:
We recognize that poverty is a multifaceted problem that requires a multifaceted response. Did you know there are over 550 homeless children in Forsyth County today?
We respond by integrating educational outreach, smart programming, effective policies, and the hands-on work of volunteers. Through our network of host & support congregations, we are able to provide food, housing, and support services for homeless families. In addition, we provide advice and advocacy for at-risk families to prevent their becoming homeless.
