May 20: Marigold 10K – No Saturday Group Run

We will not have an organized group run this Saturday. We will all be at Pittard Park in Winterville for the Marigold 10k! Marigold is organized by our club and is a flat and fast USTAF certified Peachtree qualifier.

There are still multiple opportunities to register for this awesome race. Packet Pickup is at Fleet Feet Sports Athens TODAY (Friday, May 19), from 4:00-7:00pm. You can register for the race during that time! If you stop by Fleet Feet on Friday to register or pick up your bib early, you can also enter the raffle drawing! We will be drawing 3 names to receive a $50 Fleet Feet gift card – winners will be announced on Saturday after the race!
We will also have race day registration starting at 6:30am at Pittard Park at the picnic pavilion.

Hope to see you all racing, volunteering, and cheering on our participants!
