About This Activity

This exciting event is a Peachtree Road Race qualifier (USATF certified). We hold this event rain or shine. Over 3000 participants enjoy the athletic competitions, delicious food, vendors and the opportunity to run on the closed Ronald Reagan Parkway, in beautiful Gwinnett County, GA.

This limited access, 4-lane highway is a high volume traffic road except when filled with runners and racers on this highly anticipated race day, held annually on President's Day weekend.

All event proceeds go towards the support of the Gwinnett Community Clinic. This healthcare clinic provides a medical home for uninsured, indigent, permanent residents of Gwinnett. Annually, over 500 unique patients are registered and treated with over 2000 patient visits. Eastside Medical Center and Apothecare Pharmacy are major in kind supporters of this work. GCC is an all-volunteer effort. Each year, almost 70 volunteers (physicians, nurses, therapists, phlebotomists and support staff) provide 3500 volunteer hours, valued at $120,000. The value of care provided to GCC patients is $6 million annually.
