About This Activity

The Athens Community Council on Aging is partnering with the national March for Meals campaign by pledging to end senior hunger by 2020. Please join us for the 5K Run/Walk to help end senior hunger in Athens and to support the local Meals on Wheels program at ACCA!

Virtual Race Added:  NO BLACK BAG POINTS OR GRAND PRIX POINTS FOR THE VIRTUAL RACES.  By popular demand, you can run a virtual 5K this year. Run at your house, on a treadmill, in the park, and at your convenience any time before March 26, 2016. Virtual racers won’t receive overall awards or be placed in the results, but you will receive a bib number and t-shirt in the mail if signed up for that category. Please share your virtual race pictures with us with the hashtag #m4m2016.
