About This Activity

Looking to run a certified 5k or 10k (Peachtree Qualifier)? Thinking of running your first 5k race?  Love to walk for health?  Are you a seasoned runner looking for an inspirational and fun race with a beautiful course?  Or, are you looking for a great cause to support? ConnectAbility has the event for you! September 13th at 8am in Dahlonega, there will be a 5k/10k race to benefit ConnectAbility through the historic town square and alongside Lake Zwerner. The event raises money for ConnectAbility, which provides special needs respite programs, parents support groups, and more to adults and children with special needs in the north Georgia region.

In spirit with this organization, everyone will be a winner in this race, so EVERYONE will get a high quality engraved finishers’ medal!  In addition, there will be special awards for Age Bracket Winners and the Overall Winners will win handmade pottery ‘Winner’s Cups’ made special for this race by BRAD WALKER POTTERY.

  • Professional JOGGLER (someone who juggles while they jog, naturally), Dan Berg, who will be joggling the 5k and putting on brief shows for the crowd!
  • FREE FUN RUN for KIDS at 9am!
  • Animal show on stage at Hancock Park immediately after the Fun Run by the North Georgia Zoo!

Can’t make it to this event but wish you could?  Register as a “ghost” runner!  You’ll still get a shirt and chance to support a great organization… all without the sweat…
