You don't want to miss this one!
We're having a pajama party!~
Come out to Newtown Park in Johns Creek dressed in your best "ugly pajama" (tacky, silly, cute, etc.) for a 5K run/walk! (Ugly pajamas are not required =))


Who's got some awesome ugly pajamas they want to show off?  If you got 'em for Christmas or years ago, come join us for a 5K pajama party!  Pajamas are not required, so if you don't have any, we still welcome you to join the fun!

This may have to be one of our MOST participant-favorite events!  What's even better is that WE ARE BACK at our favorite Newtown Park for 2023! It's dog-friendly, so you can bring your dog to run, or just for snuggles. Join the fun, and we can't wait to see you all out there!  Bring your best ugly, tacky, silly, event cute pajamas out for a run (or walk)!

We'll have a great shirt for all participants!  Great awards to the top 3 Overall M/F, top 3 Overall Masters M/F, Overall Grand Masters M/F, Overall Senior Masters M/F, and the top 3 in all the regular 5 year age groups. Awesome loop around the park so you can see your family & friends as you're all running; super spectator friendly!  *Virtual option is available; virtual swag will be shipped out 1/17/23.  All virtual participants will receive a shirt & chance at awards!

Event Beneficiary

MS is something that is close to our hearts here at Five Star, so every event this month will have the same beneficiary...The MS Center of Atlanta. 

A portion of the event proceeds will be going to the MS Center of Atlanta, which exists to improve the health and hope of MS patients through advocacy, education, state of the art treatment and research leading to a more promising future.  

You can help even more by giving an extra donation, or agreeing join the team, and become a fundraiser yourself.

Course & Timing

We'll be running a Certified Course; # GA16050WC !

We're in North Georgia, and there's not much that anyone can call flat & fast.  However, this is a super nice course all within the park and just a few rolls. =)
