NEW for 2015 Three 5k events on 1 certified course for runners and runners in the making Elite 5k race @ 10am 5k Briefcase Relay + costume contest @ 10:30am Timed Age Group 5k @ 11:10am
What’s a Briefcase Relay? Team up with your co-workers or classmates, family and friends (or compete against them!) for this quirky and competitive 5k relay that benefits the Georgia Mountain Food Bank.
How’s it work? In a team of 5, each person runs one kilometer of the 5K course while dressed from the waist up in business attire and carrying a briefcase filled with five cans of food (think heavy baton).
If a traditional briefcase is hard to find, laptop bags, bike messenger bags or back packs will do, but they must be carried by hand—no shoulder straps allowed. And of course the attire depends on your business—bankers, officers, bakers and even superheroes are all important jobs after all. Get creative because the relay will end with a costume contest!
The real winner will be the Georgia Mountain Food Bank, who will use your donated canned goods to help local families.
Whether you come for elite competition or the fun-filled relay, stay to watch the Six Gap Criterium at 1:10pm and enjoy the all-day Six Gap Expo.
