_ The 2022 Chick-fil-A / Big Peach Running Co. Half-Marathon (Cartersville) and Duck Dash 5K to Benefit Advocates for Children:
(Two great races...one great Saturday)
Both races benefit Advocates for Children
Want to be a part of Cartersville's first-ever Half-Marathon?! PLEASE JOIN US for what will amount to one of the most amazing days in NW GA Road Racing history! While this may indeed be the inaugural running of a Half-Marathon in Cartersville, GA, Big Peach Running Co. knows a thing or two about running!...and Chick-Fil-A knows a thing or two about customer satisfaction!
This Half-Marathon/5K tandem promises to deliver a first-class running environment that you and your friends will want to be a part of. The Half-Marathon will be combined with the 17th running of the legendary “Duck Dash 5K,” with proceeds from BOTH races going to benefit Advocates for Children! https://advochild.org/ https://advochild.org/
The Chick-fil-A/Big Peach HALF is obviously just beginning, but the 2022 version of the Duck Dash 5K brings a new location, a new route, a new time, and a whole lot of new FUN. We felt that having a half-marathon in the running community of Cartersville was overdue, while returning the 17th Annual Duck Dash 5K 'back to its roots' of the original course was also appropriate. BOTH are amazingly FAST courses!
[Please Note: For the Half-Marathon, the roads will be controlled for 2.5 hours, at which point the roads will then be opened back up for normal traffic flow.]
After the race, be sure to head to downtown Cartersville to join the crew from Advocates for Children in Friendship Plaza where the entertainment will be in full swing with the announcement of the annual Duck Derby winners later that morning! Talk about an exciting day for the entire FAMILY!
