About This Activity

We The Runners Half Marathon 10k/5k and Sparkler Trot

In the course of running events, it has become necessary for we, the runners of North Georgia, to choose our own race

We have the inalienable right to sleep later and stay closer to home

We yearn to avoid crowded MARTA trains and easily find a parking space

We cry for the mercy of a level running ground

We run in pursuit of happiness: a soft tri-blend cotton race t-shirt

We will establish a new tradition

We will promote health through running

We, the runners of North Georgia, can count the blessings of having a local race

The We the Runners Half Marathon, 10K, and 5K races will all start and end at the track in Fowler Park on the Big Creek Greenway in Forsyth County. The Big Creek Greenway is a flat, boardwalk and concrete trail winding through the woods along Big Creek.

The Sparkler Trot is a 1/2 mile (2 loops) around the track for kids ages 10 and under. For $10 they receive a medal and a treat. You can order a shirt for an additional $10.

Part of the proceeds will benefit the Forsyth County Parks and Recreation Foundation.
