Galentine’s day is a day for ladies celebrating ladies! What better way than with a 5K road race? We are BACK with the 3rd Annual Galentine’s Day 5K. Come kick it, 5k style! Fellas – you’re also invited!
The Race: USATF certified and chip timed. The course contained completely within Piedmont Park. Each participant will get a commemorative Galentine’s Day 5K race bib and super soft shirt. FIRST 500 RUNNERS WILL RECEIVE A PAIR OF OFFICIAL GALENTINE’S DAY 5K GLOVES! Event day festivities will be MC’d by a new DJ and we can’t wait for her to get you pumped for the race!
Awards: Awards breakdown: First Place Overall Female, First Place Masters female, and 3deep in each age group – Womens <10, 11-14, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+. These speedy ladies will each receive a fantastic award! Men will be scored in the same age groups.
Virtual Runners: For those of you who joined us in 2021 for a virtual Galentine’s Day observance and wish to do the same in 2022, you can sign up and we will still have a swag bag! Choose SHIPPING or NO SHIPPING options, depending on if you plan to pick up locally in Atlanta, GA.
Post Race Party: Stick around after the race for awards and post race party. We will have chocolate covered strawberries, pretzels, hot chocolate and more. We will have music, games and TONS of giveaways from local merchants. The Galentine’s day 5K is also the only 5K to offer a complementary Galentine’s day card making station after the race!
Girls on the Run of Atlanta is our official beneficiary for the 2022 Galentine’s Day 5k! Girls on the Run offers evidence-based afterschool programs that inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident. Because their coaches are trained in building supportive girl groups and part of their curriculum teaches girls how to be a good friend and choose good friends, we thought they’d be a natural fit as the beneficiary for this race! We are particularly supporting their scholarship fund, so that Girls on the Run programs can be for EVERY girl!
