Event details and schedule


The 5K course is a Peachtree Qualifier and has been USATF-Certified (#GA20019WC).

The race starts just across the street near the Senior Aquatic Center at Sam Smith Park (1155 Douthit Ferry Rd. Cartersville, GA 30121.) Runners leave the Aquatic Center area and turn north onto the paved walking trail, heading towards Cartersville Middle School.  After making a quick U-turn, runners head south just a bit before the trail veers right and continues counter-clockwise down towards the CMS soccer fields, then continuing the loop down along the Etowah River, before returning up to the Aquatic Center to finish.
