About This Activity

Prostate Cancer Awareness and Education Campaign

Prostate cancer is the most common major cancer in American men today. One in six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime. On Saturday, October 19, 2013, Forsyth Area Striders Team (F.A.S.T.), along with the Prostate Condition Education Council (PCEC), is proud to present the fifth annual FAST PACE RACE. This event ,and its proceeds, promotes prostate cancer awareness, education, and treatment options. We also offer free PSA testing and DR exams.

Course Description

Each course was designed by runners, for runners. Both the 5K and 10K are chip-timed, USATF-certified, point-to-point runs with an overall elevation drop to the finish line. The 5K course will produce many memorable PRs, and the 10K course with its beautiful half-mile visible downhill finish will give many runners their much sought-after Peachtree Road Race qualifying time.
