Packet Pick-up

We highly encourage packet pickup. It lowers our overhead costs and puts more money towards lifesaving work! Also, we have goodies for folks who pick-up packets and who doesn't love free things?

Packet pickup will be available for the following dates and times at our New St. location:

Saturday, May 15th - 8:30am - 12:00pm

Saturday, May 22nd - 8:30am - 12:00pm

Location: 114 New Street - Suite B, Decatur, GA 30030 (look for the entryway to the right of the Jazzercise sign)


Are you vaccinated and ready to join an awesome group of people all racing for a common cause? Black Girls Run is organizing a meetup Sunday, May 23rd at 7:30am and everyone is welcome to join!

Meet at MLK Center parking lot (423 John Wesley Dobbs Ave. NE) @ 7:30am, followed by a group photo at the Jackson Street Bridge. Take-off time is 8:00am
