Date: February 21, 2015
Race start time: 8:30am
Race website:
Location: Game Plaza

"Run in the cold for those who sleep in the cold!

On February 21, 2015, a cold Saturday morning in Atlanta, thousands of men, women and children are going to take to the streets of downtown Atlanta to run a road race in the bitter cold. The city of Atlanta is home to over 10,000 homeless individuals, people who face the perilous conditions of winter without a roof over their heads.

Atlanta Mission serves over 1,000 of these men, women and children every single day. The downtown men's shelter alone is a refuge for over 400 men on a daily basis. We hope you will join us this February as donors, volunteers, community members and Atlanta Mission clients run side by side in a race to end homelessness."

Give a new meaning to the term “beer run” by joining us for the 11th Annual SweetWater 420 Festival 5K on April 18, 2015 at 9 AM at Centennial Olympic Park! That’s right, SweetWater 420 Fest is back and with its BIGGEST lineup and headlining acts to date. Join us as we celebrate our 11th anniversary right here in the heart of Atlanta. We’ve listened to our loyal fans so beer immediately after the race is back (drink ticket redeemable for beer–21+ only–or soft drinks/bottled water)…plus a brand-spankin’ new course (minimal hills) to shake things up! So jump on it ‘cause the number of entries for this year’s race is limited and may sell out quickly.
