The warm weather may not have arrived yet,
but we're gonna celebrate anyway.
We're having a Beach Party...well it's actually a 5K with a great beach theme. Grab your best pair of surf shorts and come out to West Bank Park in Cumming for a Super Flat & Fast course that is all along the shore of Lake Lanier.
Participants that are registered by 1/29 are guaranteed a great long sleeve race shirt in their size.
Dec 3 - Feb 4: $27.00
A portion of the proceeds will go to a Forsyth County Food Bank, whose mission is to gather perishable food that would otherwise go to waste and deliver to local food ministries that provide food to the hungry.
Course & Timing
