Thanksgiving, the Atlanta Way
Invesco QQQ Thanksgiving Day Half Marathon, 5K, Mile & Dash
On Thanksgiving Day in Running City USA, more than 11,000 runners and walkers will participate in one of Atlanta’s longest-running turkey day traditions. The event offers a half marathon for ages 14 and younger while those 8 and older can run the 5K. Children 14 and younger can participate in the Mile & Dash FREE! If parents wish to run the Mile with their child, a $10 fee will apply. With the four different distance options, there is an option for everyone in the family.
A Healthy Start to the Holiday
The average Thanksgiving meal can come in at 2,000 calories or more. Put a dent in that and start your family’s day with a healthy activity. The half marathon, 5K and Mile start under the iconic Olympic Rings and finish on the field at Georgia State Stadium. The Dash takes place on the field. Stick around post-race for a celebration inside the stadium with Mizuno, Invesco, CLIF Bar and more! All participants will get a post-race mini pie.
