Event details and schedule

Event Beneficiary


Valentines is about love and sharing, and in that spirit, we've teamed up with Girls on the Run of North Georgia; and they'll be receiving a portion of all the proceeds from the event.


One of the great things we get to do throughout the year is work with Girls on the Run...and in the spirit of Valentines Day (sharing the love), we're working with Girls on the Run to raise money for their programs in the North Georgia area.


A portion of every race entry will be going to Girls on the Run, and every participant will have an opportunity to go out and raise a little extra through the online pledge tool.
