PARKING: 

Parking is available in the large parking lot across the river from First United Methodist Church.  To get to the parking lot where both Registration and the Start are located, go across the river's bridge on Church, turn left on Bluff St., traveling south, continue to the end of Bluff St., and take a left on Beauregard St. which leads to the large parking lot.

      PLEASE NOTE:

  • Park in lot at Starting Line listed above, then it's just a short walk approximately 1/4 mi. back to your vehicle after the race.
  • Parking is limited downtown because of Festival traffic.  Therefore, we are asking 5K participants to park in the large parking lot near the race's Start line.

 

5K COURSE:

The 5K is both scenic and fast.  The start is across the river from downtown, travels down Church St. before turning on Water St. and entering the Silver Comet Trail.  After a short out-n-back on the Silver Comet Trail, it returns to the downtown area and continues on the trail, crossing the Silver Comet bridge before heading to Rose Hill Cemetery.  A short loop around Rose Hill Cemetery and the course returns to the downtown area where you will cross the historic covered footbridge before finishing in downtown Rockmart on E. Church St. at South Crest Bank.  This race promises to produce a good time for all, no matter your age!  Run it, walk it, race it!  No matter which one...you'll be glad you came.
