The 2017 race schedule for the six race Kennesaw Grand Prix series is now finalized. The series, the premier 5K race series in north Georgia, is run on a mostly flat and fast asphalt course, professionally timed and USAT&F Certified, through downtown Kennesaw. The course is perfect for competitive runners seeking a qualifying time for the Peachtree Road Race. But the festival-like atmosphere and plentiful food and drink make these races perfect beginner runners/walkers as well as families.
The six 5K runs are part of the Fit City Kennesaw initiative which encourages residents to become more active and engage in wellness-related activities. The entry fee of $25 ($35 on race day) includes a race t-shirt.
All races are electronically timed by Orion Racing and awards are presented to the overall Male and Female winners, Male and Female Masters Winners, and the top 3 finishers in 12 age groups.
Participants in four of the six 5K series races will receive a specially designed hooded pullover. The pullover is made of premium soft French terry, is imprinted with the Kennesaw Grand Prix logo, and will help you stay warm and comfortable.
