The 6th Annual USATF Certified Intown Ten 10K Road Race **** and new for 2017 5K Road Race *** takes place in the residential streets of Virginia-Highland and Morningside neighborhoods of Atlanta. Both courses are loops which start and finish near John Howell Park which is located at Virginia Avenue NE and Barnett Street NE, Atlanta, 30306. Race proceeds benefit neighborhood causes including Trees Atlanta and The YWCA of Greater Atlanta.
Both courses have long flat stretches, some downhill stretches and some inclines, as is characteristic of the neighborhood. The 5K and 10K share the same finish line and the final stretch is a down hill quarter mile section on Barnett starting at St. Charles Avenue.
New for 2017 - We are offering a chip timed, USATF certified 5K race that starts at 8AM. You can see the 5K course on our Facebook Page. As in past years, the 10K will start at 9AM.
The Intown Ten has become a favorite with runners because of the scenic course, high quality t-shirts, finishers flags for the first 100 10K finishers and custom winner medals for 5K and 10K participants. Complimentary snacks from vendors including Press And Grind, Whole Foods, Kind Bars, Muscle Milk, Go Go Squeez, Natalies Juice Company, Krispy Kreme and more await participants at the finish line. The Atlanta Hawks will have games for those at the event to enjoy, Two Men and a Truck will be on site, as well as the Atlanta CW Team, Orange Theory Fitness, Athletic Club Northeast, Midtown Life Chiropractic, Highland Runners, Phidippides and Mountain High Outfitters.
