Two weeks before Thanksgiving in 2011 we decided that we wanted to give back to all the participants who came out to race with us over the course of the year. Thanksgiving morning seemed to be the perfect time, and giving them a FREE race would be the perfect way to say Thanks! We're continuing that tradition...If you've crossed under our finish line in any race from Dec. 1, 2020 - Nov. 14, 2021 you've earned yourself ONE FREE 5K spot in any (1) of the live races. (Please note that running the Turkey Trot last year does not qualify for a free entry.)
If you haven't crossed under our finish line this year...that's OK too...You can still come out and join us...it's just $21, in-person or virtual.
New for 2021
5K, 10K, 15K or Half Marathon Distances
Virtual 5K, 10K, 15K, or Half Marathon available for only $21.
Swag available for purchase: Awesome Shirts $15, Hoodies $20 & Finisher Medal available for just $7!
MS is something that is close to our hearts here at Five Star NTP, so this event will benefit The MS Center of Atlanta.
You can join in by either making a donation, or becoming a fundraiser yourself. Anyone who raises $200 or more will be refunded their entry fee, and anyone who raises $500 or more will also receive a coupon for $25 off any future race event.
