Race Packet Pick Up Information coming soon!
Your race packet will include:
Race Day Pick-Up
If you purchase the festival wristband prior to the mailing cutoff date, it will be mailed to you directly. If you miss this purchase date, you will need to pick up your festival wristband at the Box Office.
Beverage Coupon will be with race packet pick up. There will be no redemption’s after 11:30 AM on Saturday, and no redemption’s on Friday or Sunday. Race bibs will have no cash redemption value, but may be redeemed by someone other than the athlete.
Parking is limited. Be green! Getting to the Park is easy when riding MARTA. Simply take the West Line to the Philips Arena/Dome/GWCC Station (W-1), or take the North Line to Peachtree Center (N-1), and follow the signs to Centennial Olympic Park.
Our large crowd makes this race a tight fit with just the people. We ask that parties with strollers start near the back of the line to allow runners to make their best time.
No, please do not run with your dog on the course due to the race size. We encourage you to leave your pets at home. Dogs are also not permitted at the festival.
For safety reasons, we discourage the use of headphones on the course.
YES! Walkers are very welcome to our event. We only ask that you obey the rules of the course and walk no more than two people abreast so that others may pass easily. Walkers will start at the same time as runners, but are advised for safety reasons to start their race at the back of the pack. Walker times are recorded using the same Bib-Tag Chip as runners.
Your chip-tagged racing bib must be affixed to the front of your shirt. Your time will start when you cross the start line. A back-up redundant system will be at the finish. Please record your time at the finish if this is important to you. For those concerned with winning prizes, here are the official start/finish rules:
USATF RULE 245 FINISH LINE RECORDING AND TIMING
No, there will be no bag check.
Yes, there will be race day registration, bring a friend! “Day-of” runners must be in the system by 8:30 AM in order for bib timing to work, so please arrive early if you are not pre-registered. Everything will take place at Centennial Plaza (near fountains), Andrew Young International Plaza. For quickest results, bring a completed registration form with you.
No. We plan the race based on the number of registered runners, so once you have registered we cannot offer you a refund. If, however, you register and do not run, you may still pick up your race packet and t-shirt (before Saturday, April 22 at 11:30 AM) and join us at the after race party.
When you check the box next to a t-shirt size on your registration form, you are not reserving a shirt; you are helping us plan how many shirts we need to order in each size. Our goal is to get everyone the shirt they ordered but that cannot always be guaranteed.
