AthHalf Named #1 College Town Race (halfmarathons.net)
Runners will enjoy a gorgeous autumn-time run that begins in downtown Athens before weaving through the historic Boulevard, Normaltown, and Cobbham neighborhoods. Runners then continue past the gorgeous Greek houses on Milledge, and through the Five Points neighborhood where energetic spectators flock and cheer as they drink their morning coffee. Runners pass the “Pumpkin Patch Church” before they head onto the University of Gorgeous campus for the last few miles and finish at UGA's Sanford Stadium. And we’ll have live music throughout the course to keep you energized and having fun!
The half marathon course has a four-hour time limit. All runners must be able to complete the course within four hours. The 5K has a one-hour time limit. All runners must be able to complete the course within 1 hour.
Runners will be well supported on the course with hydration stations, cheering fans, live music, and lots of fun.
