We're starting 2022 the only way we know how, with a race! After you ring in the New Year, take a nap then come out, and join us and RUN (or walk) into the New Year! We're putting on the #NYD5K. We thought it would be appropriate to kiss 2021 goodbye, and are offering the NYD5K for just $22!

We'll have the same great course, music & an awesome Finisher Medal! Make sure you're registered as we'll only be offering Finisher Medals for the first 200 people registered (we ran out last year!). We'll have shirts as an additional purchase for $20 during registration!

If you're not ready to be out & about, join us for the virtual 5K, & we will ship you your swag (continental US only; lower 48 states)! Virtual participants will receive a Finisher Medal and shot at awards! Purchase your commemorative NYD 2022 shirt for just $20 during registration!

We'll start at 9:00 AM at North Forsyth Middle School in Cumming, & we'll have awards in the following categories: Top 3 Overall M/F, Top 3 Masters M/F, Top 3 Grand Masters M/F, Top 3 Senior Masters M/F, & Top 3 in all the usual 5 year Age Groups 10 & Under through 75+!
