Georgia Aquarium 5K: Manta Race
Georgia Aquarium’s 5K is back for its third year! Whether your motivation is to get in shape or make an impact on aquatic animal conservation, join us on March 14th as we run, jog, or walk for our one world ocean.
Georgia Aquarium’s 5K Manta Race will take place in downtown Atlanta and is perfect for beginners and seasoned runners alike. Registration includes a collectible t-shirt, a finisher’s medal, runner’s hospitality and a sponsor fair at the end of the race. Runners receive the additional benefit of $10* off a General Admission ticket to Georgia Aquarium throughout the month of March!
The event will begin and end at Pemberton Place, giving participants easy access to Georgia Aquarium, World of Coca-Cola, Centennial Olympic Park, and more. Children may participate in the 5K run, so long as they complete the course at the minimum pace of 20 minutes per mile.
All proceeds from the Georgia Aquarium 5K go towards Georgia Aquarium’s research and conservation programs that directly benefit aquatic species, including manta rays. Sign up today!
The 5K’s top three male and female finishers from each age group will receive one general admission ticket to Georgia Aquarium. The top male and female finishers in the Masters age group (40+) will win an up-close animal encounter for two (valued up to $130). The top overall male and female finishers will win an up-close animal encounter for two (valued up to $130) and a Big Peach Running Co. gift card!
