About This Activity

Come celebrate the beginning of summer in the South with a great event on a beautiful course.  This year Loop the Lake is adding a 10K & Half Marathon option.  We'll start & finish right next to the water at the Lake Blackshear Resort & Golf Club in Cordel, GA.  The 5K is a single loop.  The 10K & Half Marathon will use the same loop, and then add out and back portion along the shore of the lake.  This is the 10th year for the event, and we're really looking forward to something spectacular, with loads of new things.

Event Beneficiary: GraceWay is a non-profit, faith-based, long-term substance abuse/addiction recovery community for women. We provide a spiritual home environment that empowers residents to become productive members of their families and society through intensive application of the Twelve-Step methodology of Alcoholics Anonymous.
We are not a medical facility or hospital, but rather a world-class, long-term recovery residence for women who are serious about recovery.

GraceWay’s mission embraces a divinely–inspired, step-by-step path to recovery. We follow the Akron AA Twelve-Step recovery plan, which is based upon spiritual principles leading to a personal relationship with a loving God of each individual’s understanding.

In addition to maintaining sobriety, women are encouraged to pursue their ongoing education, employment, family responsibilities, dreams and joy-filled lives. Success is measured one woman…one day at a time.
Pacing, Finishing, & Timing: In order to maintain a safe course, the course will officially close at 11:00 am (3.5 hours after race start). Any participants still on the course will need to move to the sidewalks. All participants will be chip timed for the start & finish of the race, as well as 5K & 10K splits for the half marathon.
Course: The 5K course is a single loop inside the Resort & Georgia Veteran's State Park. The 10K & Half marathon will leave the park and follow the roadway along the shores of the lake, making for a beautiful run.
Awards: All Half Marathon & 10K finishers will receive custom finisher medals. Special awards to the top 3 overall men and women, as well as the top 3 overall master's men & women (40 yrs+) in all races. Awards will also be handed out to the top 3 in each 5 year age group starting at 10 & under and going through 75 years & older.
