About This Activity

The 35th Annual Sickle Cell Road Race is the RRCA 7K State Championship. Run the challenging 4.3 mile course or walk the 4K course (2.5 miles) through South Fultons scenic neighborhoods. The 7K championship run will be chip timed. This year, the 7K run will award a prize to the fastest team (based on the combined times of the team's fastest four runners). Teams must be registered online by April 10th. There will be no race day registration for the 7K run team competition.

All race proceeds support the mission of the Sickle Cell Foundation of Georgia and its programs to serve persons afflicted with Sickle Cell Disease. All participants are encouraged to raise $100 or more to help support the Foundations programs.

Winners will receive prizes from RRCA or the race in an award ceremony. All persons registered for the run and walk prior to race day will receive a t-shirt.  Plus, a fun filled post race party will follow with food and music. T-shirts are not guaranteed for persons who register on the day of the event.
