We’re happy to announce that the Adams Realtors Run for the Park 5K course has been recertified for another 10 years. The course was originally certified by a representative of USA Track and Field in 2012 and the certification expired on December 31, 2022. The racecourse begins and ends at the Cherokee Avenue, Zoo Atlanta parking lot in Grant Park. It’s a gorgeous, scenic route following the streets that border Grant Park, along with a loop through North Grant Park. Because the course is certified, the race is a Peachtree Road Race qualifier.
The 21 st edition of the Run for the Park will be held on Saturday, August 26, 2023, at 8 a.m. and kicks off the Summer Shade Festival. The race features chip timing and welcomes runners, walkers and baby joggers/strollers. It is a great neighborhood event, and the proceeds from the 5K go to the Grant Park Conservancy, which works to conserve, restore and maintain Atlanta’s oldest city park.
