This Half-Marathon/5K tandem promises to deliver a first-class running environment that you and your friends will want to be a part of.  The Half-Marathon will be combined with the 17th running of the legendary “Duck Dash 5K,” with proceeds from BOTH races going to benefit Advocates for Children! https://advochild.org/   https://advochild.org/

The Chick-fil-A/Big Peach HALF is obviously just beginning, but the 2022 version of the Duck Dash 5K brings a new location, a new route, a new time, and a whole lot of new FUN.  We felt that having a half-marathon in the running community of Cartersville was overdue, while returning the 17th Annual Duck Dash 5K 'back to its roots' of the original course was also appropriate.  BOTH are amazingly FAST courses! 

[Please Note: For the Half-Marathon, the roads will be controlled for 2.5 hours, at which point the roads will then be opened back up for normal traffic flow.]

Parking

  • There is plenty of parking for both races at Cartersville Primary School located at 315 Etowah Dr., Cartersville GA.
  • This is also the location of the Start/Finish line, Race Staging, and Awards ceremony.

After the race, be sure to head to downtown Cartersville to join the crew from Advocates for Children in Friendship Plaza where the entertainment will be in full swing with the announcement of the annual Duck Derby winners later that morning! Talk about an exciting day for the entire FAMILY!
