We are using the 2 1/2 loop course that is the Newtown Park "standard". It is USATF certified and can be used for seeding in the AJC Peachtree Road Race. You will pass the water stop 2 times on the course (.9 miles and 2 miles) The 1K course is a single loop. WEATHER We run rain or shine. In the event of lightning we will postpone the start until it is safe to proceed. We will work in conjunction with local authorities to determine this. In the event of lightning the safest place is always your car.
