Get ready for the inaugural running of The Intown Ten Road Race, a 10k on Sunday March 4th, 2012 through the streets of Virginia-Highland and Morningside. The race is the only USATF certified 10k in Northeast Atlanta, and all proceeds will benefit John Howell Park at the corner of Virginia Avenue and Barnett Street. The race is chip-timed and is one of your last opportunities for a qualifying time prior to the Peachtree Road Race application period.
The race will commence at 8am, and registration at Active.com is $35 until February 1st and $40 thereafter. The run is brought to you by the Intown Neighbors, a community group headed by Rob Glancy and focused on grass roots activism, progress, and beautification in Atlanta.
The 10K is open to all. The course was designed for both speed and ease. So whether you’re a competitive runner or a neighborhood resident who wants to gather friends and push a stroller to help the community, we have you in mind. Prizes will be awarded in each age group, both male and female.
Registration closes February 23rd and is limited to 1000 participants and there is no race day registration available. In-store registration is at Phidippides Ansley Mall.
All registrants will receive a commemorative t-shirt designed by renowned artist Flournoy Holmes, who designed the album covers for such notable records as The Allman Brothers Eat a Peach and Dr. John In the Right Place.
The race will begin and end near John Howell Park. Please visit our website at intownten.com for additional details, including the course map and sponsorship information, and by all means like us on Facebook.
Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to be active, which in turn will raise funds for John Howell Park. We look forward to seeing you on race day!
