We hope to have you join us for a Race to Remember, a race to help those in our community affected by Alzheimer's Disease.  All participants will receive a t-shirt and a memorable 5K run/walk along some of Rome's most scenic pathways and bridges.  RUN IT!   WALK IT!   ENJOY IT!   Make plans to join us!

THEME

The theme of this year's run is 'Heroes vs. Villains' and we encourage you to dress up as your favorite one and let's have some fun with this.  We'll have the MUSIC pumping...so prepare to have some FUN!

COURSE

This course is USATF-certified (GA21014WC) , and it travels along the beautiful Etowah and Oostanaula Rivers.  Starting and Finishing at the Courtyard Rome Riverwalk (a Marriott property), the race promises to be FLAT, FAST, and FUN!!

WAVE STARTS

Given the number of participants expected for this race, we require an estimated time for your finish of the 5K distance (3.1 miles)--Please give us your 'Best Guess.'  This is so that we may safely place each participant in the appropriate time-group to begin his/her race.  These "Waves" as they're called, will allow everyone to have a less-encumbered path and will be spaced an appropriate amount of time apart for everyone to better enjoy their experience along the beautiful course.

PROFESSIONAL TIMING

In addition to a certified course--which is a Peachtree RR Qualifier--the race will be professionally-timed by Wire2Wire Running, LLC, using MyLaps' R.F.I.D. technology...the same technology used to time the Boston Marathon, London Marathon, and Tour de France.

T-SHIRT

Ah yes, the coveted prize of every participant...The T-SHIRT!  Designed by professional graphic designer Lamante S. Attaud--originally from New York--this comfort-soft T-Shirt will be the talk of the town.

Please Note: T-SHIRT SIZE IS GUARANTEED TO THOSE WHO PRE-REGISTER BEFORE JUNE 10, 11:00pm.  BEYOND THAT DATE, T-SHIRT SIZE CANNOT BE GUARANTEED.
