|Bootlegger Half Marathon & 4 Miler
Come celebrate the beginning of summer in the South with a great themed race. This is the 2nd year, and we've got a new name, and we've worked out all the kinks. Both events will start and finish at the Georgia Racing Hall of Fame. Participants will have the opportunity to tour the museum before and after the race. This inaugural event is expected to sell out early, so don't put off registration.

Adopt a Spartan!
