On Saturday, August 27 at 8:00am, hundreds of runners will again assemble at the entrance to Zoo Atlanta on Cherokee Avenue for the Nineth Annual Adams Realtors Run for the Park benefitting the Grant Park Conservancy.
“Run, Drink, Support the Park” has become the unofficial rallying cry for this event, as all participants 21 and older have the opportunity to get a free draft beer at the conclusion of the race. Additionally, it serves as the kick-off event for the annual Summer Shade Festival held the last weekend of August.
The t-shirt is always highly prized, as this will be the third in a series featuring some special aspect of location in Grant Park. As always, the feature remains a secret until the day of the race.
Newly added this year is a “Stroller Stroll” that will be featured as part of the 5-K race for those runners/walkers wanting to participate but also wanting to include their littlest runners. The free tot trot for runners up to age 5 will be held at 8:45am.
Sponsorships are still available starting as low as $250. This is a great way to advertise your local business to a captive audience, many of whom live in the immediate area.
Since it takes many hands to make an event such as this successful, there is also a need for volunteers, another great way to give back to your neighborhood.
For information on registration, sponsorship, or volunteer opportunities, contact either Adams Realtors at 404-688-1222 or Jim Camp at 404-630-9833 and email@example.com.
