_ The 2018 Tryptophan Half Marathon 10k/5k:

The 7th annual Tryptophan Half Marathon has become a north Georgia tradition to begin your Thanksgiving Day festivities. Before digging into their Thanksgiving feast, runners will work up their appetite participating in one of the three distances: Half Marathon, 10K, or 5K. Race day is Thursday, November 22, 2018 and all proceeds benefit Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. 

Race is chip-timed and registration includes a finisher medal for all distances, FREE photography, long sleeve race tee, and flat course!! 

The Tryptophan Half Marathon, 10K/5K will be on the Big Creek Greenway again this year! All distances will start and finish at Fowler Park, 4110 Carolene Way, Cumming, GA 30040, and participants will enjoy the beauty of the fall colors as they run/walk along the Big Creek Greenway. After a loop around the track, half marathon, 10k, and 5k runners will make their way onto the Big Creek Greenway for their respective distances before coming back to the track to cross the finish line. The Big Creek Greenway is a 12 foot wide concrete and boardwalk path that winds through woods along Big Creek and is a favorite route among north Georgia runners and walkers alike.

Participants are encouraged to sign up early – there is a limit of participants for all distances due to limited space on the Big Creek Greenway. Carpooling is also suggested as the parking lot at Fowler Park could fill up quickly. Those who register by 11/20 are guaranteed a race t-shirt. Due to the high volume of runners/walkers and the limited space on the greenway, no dogs, baby strollers, bikes, or skates will be allowed.

Packet pick-up will be on Tuesday, 11/20 and  Wednesday, 11/21 11am to 7pm at Totally Running, 405 Peachtree Parkway, Cumming, GA 30041. Packet pick up will also be available race day starting at 6:30 am at Fowler Park. No identification necessary to pick up packets. You can pick up packets for friends and family. 

Awards will be presented to: Overall Male/Female – 1st, 2nd, 3rd; Age Group categories (10 & under through 65+ in 5 year increments). Since Thanksgiving is all about family and friends we will award the group that shows the most "SPIRIT"!!
