In the course of running events, it has become necessary for we, the runners of North Georgia, to choose our own race.
We have the inalienable right to sleep later and stay closer to home.
We yearn to avoid crowded MARTA trains and easily find a parking space.
We cry for the mercy of a level running ground.
We run in pursuit of happiness: a soft tri-blend cotton race t-shirt.
We will establish a new tradition.
We will promote health through running.
We, the runners of North Georgia, can count the blessings of having a local race. And We invite you to join us......

This year proceeds from We The Runners Half Marathon 10k/5k will benefit Hire Heroes USA. 

About Hire Heroes USA:
Hire Heroes USA is one hundred percent committed to veteran and military spouse employment, which is demonstrated through our relentless focus on professional and personalized service. So, what sets us apart?

Our services are free and most are offered virtually, so we work with clients regardless of location.
Clients are individually-paired with a Transition Specialist – many of whom are veterans and military spouses and all of whom understand how challenging the job search can be. 
We offer services beyond the 1-1 assistance from a Transition Specialist, including virtual workshops, career fairs, webinars, a job board and more.
Our services don’t go away until the veteran or military spouse decides they no longer need them.
Our job board houses tens of thousands of jobs posted by companies who have been vetted by our staff.
We partner with companies that offer scholarships and training opportunities to veterans and military spouses.
Our network of more than 750 volunteers – most of whom work in corporate America, as entrepreneurs, or as federal employees – coach, mentor and mock interview clients to help them prepare for the job search.

We believe it’s more than just a numbers game. Each and every one of our program participants has a unique story to tell, as well as a unique skill set to offer employers. Through our expert, personalized service and support, we help individuals transform their lives every single day.
