If you have been looking for a triathlon that will challenge your whole family, then you have come to the right place! Run for God is proud to announce the Second Annual - Run for God - Dalton Parks Triathlon. This fast and flat course sits in the heart of Dalton, GA at the newly remodeled and state of the art "Ronald Nix Complex" at James Brown Park. This race is somewhat small in numbers, but if you have ever been to a Run for God race, then you know that the atmosphere is nothing short of a National event.
This course is kid and beginner friendly and will challenge even the most seasoned athlete. Safety is our number one concern which is why we have gone to great lengths to have the entire course closed to traffic at all times. It is our hope that you will join
Adult Super Sprint (300m Swim/12 Mile Bike/2 Mile Run)
Intermediate and Senior Age 9-15 (150m Swim/4 Mile Bike/1 Mile Run)
Junior's Age 6-8 (50m Swim/2 Mile Bike/Half Mile Run)

Lifeguards will be on pool deck at all times!
Join us on Friday at the transition area from 4-8:00 PM for packet pickup and to get a good look at the course. Our staff and volunteers will be on hand to answer all of your questions and to help put your mind at ease should this be your first event! You may also pick-up your packet on race morning from 5:30-6:30AM.
Race Day Parking
Plenty of parking around James Brown Park, but remember, the early bird gets the worm!
This course is VERY spectator friendly, so bring the family!
Participants will have a race number marked on their arms and legs. Each participant will have his/her age on the back of his/her leg in marker.
Our race will be chip-timed. EACH PARTICIPANT MUST WEAR A TIMING CHIP AT ALL TIMES DURING THE RACE. Once the participant has crossed the finish line there will be volunteers retrieving the timing chip. ALL TIMING CHIPS MUST BE RETURNED.
