WE THE RUNNERS HALF MARATHON 10K/5K & SPARKLER TROT
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.
Your race registration will include a cool race t-shirt, We The Runners Commemorative Finisher Medal (all distances) , No guarantee of T-Shirt if you register after 6/25
This year proceeds from We The Runners Half Marathon, 10k/5k will benefit Hire Heroes USA.
