Race Information

It's time for our Patriotic Series!  Join us for our annual Memorial Day 5K/10K and 15K!

Memorial Day is about remembering the soldiers who died while on Active Duty in the Military. In their honor, we are offering all Active and Retired Military a *Complimentary race (5K, 10K or 15K)* on May 27, 2024.  Come join us and pay tribute to those that have served & continue to serve & protect our country!

We start at 7:30 AM in Marietta with an amazing crowd full of energy.  Scenic course, Finisher Medals (limited to the first 500 registered participants), awesome race shirts, & Awards for the Top 3 Overalls, Top 3 Masters Overalls, Top 3 Grand Master Overalls, Top 3 Senior Master Overalls, and Top 3 in all the regular 5 year Age Groups.

Join us for all three Patriotic races to complete your Patriotic Medal Series!


Armed Forces Mission provides Donors, Volunteers, and Advocates the organization they require to eradicate suicide and transform lives. We provide direct intervention for individuals  within the Veteran and Law Enforcement Community and training for people from all walks of life through AFM's Training Division; the Intervention Institute.

Suicide takes more than 43,000 lives a year in the US. A disproportional amount of losses occurs in the veteran community.

Sigma Nu Kappa Chapter UNG-Dahlongega's philanthropy is AFM. They will be collecting the donations and will be at the race volunteering.
