We wanted to take a moment to give you a COVID-19 update and how it impacts the July 18th For Those About to Run 5K. While we have been told by Cobb PD they will soon start allowing runs to happen again as long as several criteria are met, we have talked extensively with the venue, and they are not quite ready to host an event of this size and complexity, based on the criteria (Last year’s event had over 600 people and a large party attached to it). Given the current situation and restrictions, and out of an abundance of caution, we will be moving the July 18th run to a virtual-only run.
IF YOU ALREADY REGISTERED; Your registration will automatically roll over to the virtual option. In addition, we are working on moving the Live version of this race to the Fall (“For Those About to Run 5K – the Encore!”). Once we have the date locked in for it, you will also be automatically registered for the Live run as well! (This way, you get to take part in both runs for your one registration fee, and you will get swag from both races) WHAT YOU WILL GET WITH THE VIRTUAL RUN
- An awesome shirt!
- GUITAR SHAPED FINISHER MEDAL!
- COOL PRIZE for the winner of the lip sync battle! (Details below)
- Door prizes at our Virtual Live event! (Details below)
- The ultimate rock n roll playlist!
- Points in the Run and See Georgia Grand Prix (www.runandseegeorgia.com)
