Why run from the spirits when you can take them with you! The first annual Spooky Spirit 5K, presented by the team behind the award-winning Suwanee Wine Fest, offers a Cocktails and Costumes twist on the traditional 5K. This timed, Peachtree Road Race qualifying event is fitting for anyone, whether you are a competitive runner trying to beat your personal record, or you’re simply looking to sip and stroll with your closest cocktail loving friends. Just choose the ticket that channels your Halloween spirit - either non-stop or with Spirit stops - and we’ll all cheers together at the finish line!
The 5K will start at Suwanee Town Center Park and head down the scenic Suwanee Creek Greenway, ending back at Suwanee Town Center Park. For those who purchase a ticket with “spirits", you’ll be able to pause at each of the five Spirit Stations (aloha, Mai Tai!) along the course and hydrate with a 3 ounce cocktail sample. Each Spirit Station will feature a different cocktail and theme, guaranteed to be more treat than trick. For those who opt to run straight through without Spirit stops, don't fear, we have you covered - ALL runners (over 21) will get to enjoy a full cocktail at the end of the race.
Prizes will be awarded after the race for the Most Spirited costumes, so come dressed in your most festive running gear! Awards will go to (1) best female costume, (2) best male costume and (3) best group costume
Need to walk off some of that alcohol? There will be vendors and sponsor booths waiting for you at the finish line!
Every runner will also get to take home an official Spooky Spirit 5K shirt, medal and souvenir glass to brag about your well-deserved accomplishment.
