  1. Join us for The Escape the Elves 5K hosted by South Hall Rotary Club in Downtown Flowery Branch.  This fun-filled morning will feature a chance to hang out with Santa before the race and it gives his pesky elves plenty of time to hide along the course!  Be sure to look out for a few mischievous elves along the way!  Dress for the season and you may find the chance to open a gift early as we will be awarding the most festive outfit at the event.  The run will kickoff at the Historic Flowery Branch at the Depot! The 5K course is USATF Certified!
