Start area is on Charles Allen, East of the Lake near the bridge.

Parking around Piedmont Park is LIMITED. Parking on the neighborhood streets in the vicinity of Piedmont Park is HIGHLY discouraged as many of the streets around the park are designated “Resident Parking Only” and require a parking sticker.

We encourage you to take the MARTA to 10th Street station and walk 8 blocks east to Piedmont Park.

3. Important Notes:

There will not be an “after-party” per se but after the run and the beautiful sunset, you can celebrate with a beer or go somewhere to get a bite!

Plan to arrive at least 15 minutes before the scheduled start time. There is no check-in, you simply walk to the starting area where the hand timer will be setup with cones.

If you arrive late, you can still run – however, your finishing time will need to be adjusted.

The course is marked as best as possible. In the event you get lost or run off course, please finish the best you can and we can try and adjust times.

Half-Marathon distances are looped – please count the loops yourself.

– If you arrive late, you can still run – however, your finishing time will need to be adjusted.

Final Remarks & Important Information:

Please review the following:

• Running with kiddos? Be sure to keep them close throughout the run.

• No Alcohol or commercial food permitted in the Park.

• Runners start near the front. If you are planning to walk, please start towards to back to allow runners to clear through first.


  • Respect each other.
  • Dispose all trash in trash bins
  • If you arrive late, you can still run – however, your finishing time will need to be adjusted.

Have a great run and we hope you enjoy the sunset!
