The starting point will be the Braves Miracle Field of Rome, located next door to State Mutual Stadium, home of the Rome Braves. The Finish Line will be home plate at State Mutual Stadium. The 10K course has very little elevation and will take runners on the Armuchee Connector and Three Mile Road while also using the trail system around State Mutual Stadium.
Proceeds from the race benefit the Braves Miracle Field of Rome. Since the inaugural game at the Braves Miracle Field of Rome in April 2012, over 200 players have suited up to play baseball at this specialized park. Programming through a partnership with the Rome-Floyd County Parks & Recreation Authority, the Braves Miracle Field of Rome allows for children and adults with mental & physical challenges to enjoy the game of baseball. Since its opening, a spring and fall league has been introduced as well as a school league which allows students from local special education classes to take part in the game of baseball on a safe & secure field.
