Reasons to Look Forward to Football Season

Summer has its hold on Atlanta right now, but there are already so many reasons to look forward to fall! Atlanta Track Club has a few ways to celebrate all things football coming up in the next couple of months, and we hope you will join us.

Kick off College Football Season in Style
Can’t wait until Labor Day Weekend to show off your school pride? Don’t worry, you don’t have to! The Tailgate 5K encourages participants to get out their college gear for race day. This event is free for Atlanta Track Club members and $10 for nonmembers, so it’s an affordable way to get the whole family active. The Tailgate 5K will be held on August 5 at Chastain Park. Register here by August 3.

Get a Close Look at Mercedes-Benz Stadium
The new Mercedes-Benz Stadium will soon welcome its first visitors, and we want you to be among the first to enjoy an on-field experience. Whether you’re an Atlanta Falcons fan, an Atlanta United supporter, or both, you won’t want to miss the Mercedes-Benz Stadium 5K/Walk Like MADD. The event offers a 5K, one mile and 50m dash, so Atlanta sports fanatics young and old can have a one-of-a-kind experience as they finish on the Falcons’ 50-yard line. Participants receive a commemorative shirt and medal. All proceeds benefit Mothers Against Drunk Driving – Georgia. Register here by September 26. Race day is September 30!

Train Hard this Fall
Not a football fan? Lace up and get fit for fall! Atlanta Track Club’s In-Training programs will help you train for the distance of your choosing – a 5K, half marathon or marathon. Our programs welcome all levels, from beginners to those who want to improve their race times. You’ll meet new people and have a lot of fun along the way. Learn more and register here.
