One of the most popular races in Atlanta, Romp and Stomp 5k kicks off the Cabbagetown Chomp and Stomp Chili Cookoff and Bluegrass Festival. This is the race's 20th running, and features a fast, flat course through historic Cabbagetown that is great for first timers or those chasing a PR. All participants receive an awesome LONG-SLEEVED T-shirt and a free chili tasting spoon for the Chomp and Stomp Chili and Bluegrass Festival later that day.
If you plan on walking the race, please sign up for the walker division. The walkers will start at 7:45 am, ahead of the runners.
If you plan on running/walking with strollers and/or walking with dogs, please go last in the runners category.
Dogs are not allowed to the Chomp and Stomp Festival per City of Atlanta Festival Ordenance.
The proceeds from the Romp and Stomp 5k benefit the non-profit organization maintaining the neighborhood's two beautiful parks and community center: the Cabbagetown Initiative CDC. Families from all over Intown Atlanta enjoy the fun, clean and safe environment these parks provide.
