Georgia Aquarium (Virtual) 5K: Sharks!
Race Dates: March 13 - April 18
Georgia Aquarium is excited to host its fourth annual 5K walk/run! Though circumstances don’t allow us to walk and run together, traditions remain strong! Whether your motivation is to get in shape or make an impact on aquatic animal conservation, join us as we walk, jog, or run for our one world ocean.
A virtual race means you can participate anywhere you’d like and at your own pace! Whether you take on your 3.1 miles in your neighborhood, in a park, on a shoreline, or even a treadmill, simply submit your results on our site and enjoy bragging rights of helping our oceans! You'll also receive a commemorative t-shirt and medal!
All proceeds from the Georgia Aquarium 5K go toward Georgia Aquarium’s research and conservation programs directly benefiting aquatic species, including sharks!
Thank you for participating!
