About This Activity

Join us in downtown Blue Ridge during the height of the leaf season for a fast, relatively flat (yes, there is flat in the mountains of Georgia!), certified 5K run.

All proceeds go to the Humane Society of Blue Ridge and we welcome all runners and walkers alike! Come on out to support an amazing organization, get some exercise, have an awesome post race meal, hope you're lucky enough to win one of many post race giveaways and if you sign up by October 4 you'll guarantee yourself a great race t-shirt.
