USATF Certified Course! Peachtree Qualifier! The Greenway is beautiful! This is a NEW race with 15 age group awards! Video footage when you cross the finish line! Personalized page results! Super fun for a Wonderful Cause!
Hey! Have you ever had a personal results page? Was there a downloadable Finishers Certificate on there? Did it have video footage of you crossing the finish line? Have you ever had printable results with your pace, rank, time etc. Immediately after you cross the finish line? Well, guess what! We have hired Tortoise and the Hare Racing and now you will!
Now, if you want to support but not sweat...be a Phantom runner!
You may be asking yourself, why are they holding this race? This 5K is a for a charity that gives scholarships towards education and recognizes those students who are not afraid to stand apart from others and make a difference in the world. Check out some of Tyler’s and Taylor’s story...Tyler loved and protected his little sister Taylor. Due to a tragic accident, Tyler drowned while attending Summer School at Harvard University.
He was a young man that was an example of stepping up and stepping out to make the dreams and goals one may have, happen! Taylor was born with a chromosomal disorder. Doctors said that she would not walk or talk. Leonie (her mom) and Tyler learned sign language so that they could communicate with Taylor. Through their example, she has overcome the challenges that were told to her family of a life she could not live. She overcame them to the point that even the Doctors are amazed. In 2015, Taylor received a bronze medal for her age group in the Paulding County Special Olympics Run/Walk! Many people do not know this, but Tyler named his little sister. He loved her and graciously accepted her disability by showing everyone that she had the ability to achieve greatness! If Taylor could do a run/walk when the Doctors said she could not...YOU CAN TOO!! We are happy to announce that this 5K is for YOU! If Taylor can do it, YOU CAN DO IT!
