Come out and join Hiser Orthodontics & the LRJ Foundation for a great Saturday morning full of fun.

We're running in Alpharetta on an awesome course that includes the High School, so it's pretty much closed to traffic, and great for running.

Awesome race shirts, great awards for the overall M/F, overall master's M/F, overall grand master's M/F, overall senior master's M/F, as well as the top 3 in all of the normal 5 year age groups (10 & under through 75+).
