Our race course starts and ends in the parking lot of our Northeast Cobb YMCA, both courses follow an out and back with light rolling hills.  While the course elevation maps look like sharks teeth, the course only varies 80ft of elevation from start to finish. The 5K race are USATF certified, running a race on a certified course allows you to accurately compare your time to performances run on other certified courses because you can be sure the distances were the same. You can also use your time from either race as a qualifier for the 2018 Peachtree Road Race!
