Avoid Skipping Recovery
Listening to your body is key to avoiding injury and burnout. Your body can actually grow stronger when you are at rest. The process of training includes workouts that are strategically placed along with rest days, which provides stimulation during the activity and recovery when you are at rest. If you are new to running, it is important not to push yourself to hard. Injuries can pop up when training advances too quickly. If your body is giving you warning signs, listen and take the extra time off so you can fully adjust and recover to meet your specific fitness needs.
Join us for a Holiday celebration! This night of family-friendly fun for the whole community begins with a 5K around the scenic Etowah River Park in Canton, GA. Then grab your lawn chairs, blankets and movie snacks for an outdoor movie with your friends! This Christmas themed event registration includes a chip timed race entry, race t-shirt and a popcorn/movie pass to the movie under the sky.
Race start is at 4:30pm movie begins at Dusk
The course is mostly flat and fast. It's so pretty, it runs along said the Etowah River and into a beautiful greenway then circles out at the lovely Heritage park. It is an out and back course but you would never know it!
There is lots of parking available onsite and right outside the park all is well within walking distance.
Everyone gets a free shirt and the movie and popcorn are included in the price!
Don't forget your blankets, lawn chairs, movie snacks (we'll provide the popcorn) pretty sure you may see some candy canes there too!
Georgia weather changes when if feels like, dress accordingly. The race will be held rain or shine.
There are a lot of ways to make fun family memories, make this one of them!
We have timing technology that will blow your mind! We not only have printable results (so you don't have to wait around to see if you placed) but when you go online to check your times you get your own personal page with all your data. THEN on your page is a video of you crossing the finish line...but not only that you get an awards certificate congratulating you on your achievement with your pace, rank, time etc. recorded too so that now you have that as a reminder to shoot for your next PR! But here is where it gets even better...ready? Ok, it will also be live stream! Why does this matter?? Because people who can't be there who you would love to be there can now watch you at home on YOUTUBE aaaand you have proof you were there and not telling a "Big Fish" story!! Yep! We wanted to capture this race so you can also remember what a fun time you had!
