Set a Date
No matter if it is your first 5K race or your hundredth, when you register for a 5K race it will keep you motivated and on task to reach your goal of running a successful 5K race. By actually setting up a date on your calendar, you pinpoint the time that you have to be ready to step on that starting line of your 5K race.
Prepare a training schedule immediately after booking your 5K race. New runners should begin with light training and build into a longer running routine.
Come to the beautiful North Georgia mountains and join us for the 43rd Annual Apple Festival 5K Road Race in downtown Ellijay. The race will take place on Saturday, October 12th. The race is in conjunction with the Apple Festival, one of the largest arts and craft festivals in Georgia.
The 5k course is relatively flat. Walkers and baby strollers are welcome. There will be a 1 mile fun run and a tot trot after the 5k.
In addition to working up a good sweat and getting a great t-shirt, come and enjoy the after race goodies.
