Run for God - Dalton Parks Triathlon 2013

If you have been looking for a triathlon that will challenge your whole family, then you have come to the right place! Run for God is proud to announce the Second Annual - Run for God - Dalton Parks Triathlon. This fast and flat course sits in the heart of Dalton, GA at the newly remodeled and state of the art "Ronald Nix Complex" at James Brown Park. This race is somewhat small in numbers, but if you have ever been to a Run for God race, then you know that the atmosphere is nothing short of a National event.


This course is kid and beginner friendly and will challenge even the most seasoned athlete. Safety is our number one concern which is why we have gone to great lengths to have the entire course closed to traffic at all times. It is our hope that you will join
