About This Activity

The Magnolia Run is EFGA's longest running fundraiser (32 years!) and we need your help to make 2015 our best yet. Last year's Magnolia Run was the most successful in the history of the event, with a record breaking 90 teams, more than 1500 participants and raised more than $144,000 - that is $20,000 more than 2013!! We cannot express our gratitude enough to the entire epilepsy community! Thank you for the friends and family of loved ones living with epilepsy who continuously support this event!

The Magnolia Run is held on a fairly flat course around Perimeter Mall and the surrounding streets. The course is accommodating to runners and walkers of all ages, speeds and athletic abilities. Dogs and strollers are welcome, but are asked to keep to the right if moving at a slower speed. Please note, the 5k and 1 Mile will begin simultaneously at 8:00AM. When registering for the 2015 Magnolia Run, participants will need to select either 5k or 1mile.



When registering you will need to select either 5k or 1 mile. If you select the 1 mile, you will not receive a timing chip. Should you decide at a later date that you would like to a timing chip for the 5k, you will need to contact Aly at magnoliarun@epilepsyga.org.

Awards will begin around 9:00am and will only be given to the following finishers: Male/Female Overall, Male/Female Masters Overall, and the 1st place finisher for Male/Female in their respective age groups. Awards will also be given to the top 5 fundraising teams.

Back By Popular Demand!
