Patch Staff Report

The City of Kennesaw has announced that the 2014 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; each benefits city facilities or projects. Registration can be done online at www.active.com. The entry fee of $25 ($35 on race day) includes a race t-shirt.

This year’s lineup is as follows:

May 10 – Swift-Cantrell Classic

Jun 14 – Dream Dash

Jul 12 – Elf Trot

Aug 2 – Run for Wounded Heroes

Sep 6 – Great Locomotive Race

Nov 1 – Garden Gallop

The Kennesaw Grand Prix makes a great race experience simple and easy. Each race begins at the Kennesaw First Baptist Church on Main Street in downtown Kennesaw. With plentiful parking, restrooms, room to spread out and warm-up, the registration and start area helps to get you ready for your PR race. Each race program includes a 1 mile fun run at 7:30 am; the 5K at 8 am; and a Tot Trot at 8:55 am. Awards are presented in the plaza adjacent to the Pedestrian Underpass to the top finishers in 14 categories immediately afterwards.

Participants in four of the six 5K series races will receive an ultra-soft hooded, 50/50 blend sweatshirt. The hood is double-lined, has a matching drawstring, comes in a great color, and is imprinted with the Kennesaw Grand Prix logo. It is this season’s “Must Have” item.

We gratefully acknowledge the contribution of this year’s sponsors Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, Loud Security Systems, Dave and Buster's, ClickHost, and State Farm - David Grant.
