We are super excited about once again being the official water sponsor of the Kennesaw Grand Prix race series. The races are well run and they are located right in Kennesaw! Who could ask for more?
The 2016 race schedule was recently finalized and can be found on their site. The series, the premier 5K race series in north Georgia, is run on a mostly flat and fast asphalt course, professionally timed and USAT&F Certified, through downtown Kennesaw. The course is perfect for competitive runners seeking a qualifying time for the Peachtree Road Race. But the festival-like atmosphere and plentiful food and drink make these races perfect beginner runners/walkers as well as families.
The six 5K runs are part of the Fit City Kennesaw initiative which encourages residents to become more active and engage in wellness-related activities. The entry fee of $25 ($35 on race day) includes a race t-shirt.
All races are electronically timed by Orion Racing and awards are presented to the overall Male and Female winners, Male and Female Masters Winners, and the top 3 finishers in 12 age groups.
Participants in four of the six 5K series races will receive a specially designed hooded pullover. The pullover is made of premium soft French terry, is imprinted with the Kennesaw Grand Prix logo, and will help you stay warm and comfortable. And did we mention you get to drink Fontis Water at each race?
The first race is May 7, so make sure you have registered and we look forward to seeing you there!
