We The Runners Half Marathon, 10k/5k - GOES VIRTUAL

We have waited to make an informed decision regarding the We The Runners Half Marathon, 10k/5k and Sparkler Trot race. Unfortunately, we are unable to solidify race logistics such as permitting, state and county event guidelines, volunteer safety protocol, etc. We The Runners Half Marathon, 10k/5k is now a virtual race, the Sparkler Trot is canceled. This was a hard decision, we want to cheer you at the finish line while celebrating our nation’s freedoms together. Please know we are committed to creating a fun virtual race experience for all participants as well as supporting our benefiting charity, Hire Heroes USA. Every mile you train and run for this event is dedicated to our veterans and their families.

Description

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, so we invite you to join us...

This year proceeds from We The Runners Half Marathon 10k/5k will benefit Hire Heroes USA.

There will be cheering and support, but most of all, there will be fun and flags as we run in celebration of our nation and its heroes!
