Fancy yourself a runner? You can test out those runnin’ shoes at the 3rd annual Run With the Chiefs 5K at the Outlet Shoppes at Atlanta on Saturday, August 2. Brought to you by the Sequoyah XC Boosters, the Annual Run With the Chiefs event is the team’s primary fundraiser each year. Proceeds go toward uniforms, travel expenses, race entry fees and team equipment.
Prizes will be awarded to the top three male and female finishers, custom awards for the age group winners, and drawings for door prizes that will include gift certificates, mall merchandise and a FREE round-trip ticket on Southwest Airlines. The race starts at 8:30 a.m. and for the first time it is a Peachtree Road Race Qualifier!
The course will be mostly flat, beginning at the Outlet Shoppes and heading south along Woodstock Parkway before turning around at Cherokee Ford. The race will finish with a slight downhill stretch back into the parking lot. For a map of the route, click here.
Race packet pick-up will be located at the Asics and New Balance stores at the Outlet Shoppes from 6-8p.m. on July 31st and August 1st.
