On May 10 at 7:30 a.m., racers will run or walk the flat route through historic downtown Kennesaw.
The route is a USA Track and Field Certified course and electronically timed for fast and accurate results.
The Kennesaw Grand Prix series is perfect for competitive runners seeking a qualifying time for the Peachtree Road Race. But the festival-like atmosphere and plentiful food and drink make these races perfect for beginner runners/walkers as well as families.
The six 5K runs are part of the Fit City Kennesaw initiative which encourages residents to become more active and engage in wellness-related activities.
Registration can be completed online at www.active.com. The entry fee of $25 ($35 on race day) includes a race T-shirt.
Each race begins at the Kennesaw First Baptist Church on Main Street in downtown Kennesaw. The programs all include a 1-mile fun run at 7:30 a.m., with the 5K at 8 a.m. and a Tot Trot at 8:55 a.m.
Participants in four of the six 5K series races will receive a hooded sweatshirt imprinted with the Kennesaw Grand Prix logo.
