About This Activity

The 2nd annual Race for Rest 5K is a certified Peachtree qualifier (USATF cert GA15093WC), benefiting the Furniture Bank of Metro Atlanta whose mission is to offer gently-used donated furniture to individuals and families coming out of homelessness and fleeing domestic violence as well as countless others struggling to make ends meet. 

Because everyone deserves a place to lay their head.

Afterwards, stick around for the spectacle that is the Atlanta Bed Race - where teams of 5 race twin beds on wheels, in costume, through the streets of Atlantic Station.
