Your participation will support the evidence-based treatment programs at Skyland Trail and help remove financial barriers for families in need. Young people are particularly experiencing depression and anxiety and seeking mental health services at alarming rates. The U.S. surgeon general has warned that young people are facing “devastating” mental health effects as a result of the challenges experienced by their generation, including the pandemic. Raising funds through the Skyland Trail 5k will make a difference in the lives of teens and their families.
This family-friendly event is open to all. Individuals under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult. This year, the Skyland Trail 5K Run/Walk will be a chipped-timed event and an official qualifier for the 2025 AJC Peachtree Road Race.
Check-in on the morning of the event will open at 7:30 a.m. You may also register online through 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, September 14, 2024. On-site walk-up registration is available for $50. Virtual participation options are available.
