In light of the COVID-19 situation, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the McDonough Methodist Academy 5K. We feel that this is the best course of action to ensure the safety of our runners, staff and volunteers.
We are currently looking to reschedule to mid to late May, but the date is to be determined. All registered runners will be automatically registered for the new date. We will keep you informed as the exact date is selected.
We apologize for any inconvenience this causes, and thank you for your patience and understanding. This is a new situation for all of us.
The McDonough Methodist Academy 5k is an annual tradition that starts from the gymnasium of McDonough Methodist Academy and goes through the beautiful and historic downtown McDonough square. A fairly flat course with some mild rolling hills will keep you running like a Bunny and looking forward to the breakfast following the event. Sign up by March 13 to guarantee that you get a shirt!
This race is a USATF certified Peachtree Road Race Qualifier and uses electonric chip timing.
