Event Description

Run for the Son, now with electronic timing, is an amazing run for the whole family!

The Run for the Son 5k/10k will be held as a hybrid event offering both virtual and onsite race day options. We will follow community safety guidelines by health experts regarding the feasibility of hosting a large outdoor sporting event. In early 2022 we will assess the feasibility of safely hosting a large in-person event. If we are only able to proceed virtually, all those registered for in-person will be moved to virtual.

All proceeds of the event support the Radiate Student Ministry's international mission trip and Eric Petty Scholarship fund. Whether you're an avid runner seeking a qualifier for the AJC Peachtree Road Race, or just a walker looking for a good cause to support while you get in a few thousand steps, you're sure to find that here.
