The Course

The race will circle around the manicured landscape of Ansley Park golf course before returning to Rhodes Hall for the finish.

The course is stroller and dog friendly (just as long as your pooch is well-behaved, leashed, and under your control at all times). There will be a special “pet pit stop” along the race route to provide dogs with drinking water. Dogs and their runners will also have their own special start group.


Awesome Race Shirts and Prizes

All participants will receive an awesome t-shirt. Awards will be given to the top 3 overall male/female finishers, top 3 male/female finishers in each age group, first participant with a stroller and first dog.


The event is rain or shine. No refunds will be given.
