About This Activity

The 42nd annual Apple Festival 5K Road Race is a scenic, 2 loop course during the peak of autumn. After the 5K we will have a 1 Mile Fun Run followed by a Tot Trot. We will have apple pies as well as many other treats for all of the runners. The race is a great kickoff to the Apple Festival in Ellijay, GA. So you can stay after the race and enjoy all of the fun!    We expect up to 200 runners to participate in this year so come join us for a great event.
