Description

The 2019 Boulder Dash 5K | 10K Race is a unique race in Forsyth County, Georgia.

The course winds through an active quarry, offering participants views of the working quarry face, ancient rock deposits, and massive equipment used to process, move and manage the rock. At the finish line, the Bluegrass Spring Fling awaits, with Exhibitor/Team Tents and lots of fun for racers and spectators alike.

Sponsor generosity combines with race registration fees to make this event a great fundraiser in the Forsyth community.

Proceeds from this year’s race will benefit the Forsyth County Parks Foundation, Inc. (FCPF), a group of community members who work to support and improve Forsyth County’s parks and recreation facilities and activities.
