BUCKHEAD RACE BENEFITS SOLDIERS
Lace up those running shoes to honor the men and women who protect our country. Starting and finishing at Chastain Park and passing the Galloway School, the scenic but mostly flat Salute Our Troops 5K course is perfect for beginners.
The beneficiary of the event is the Charity Benevolent Fund that assists active duty, reserve and retired soldiers with living and medical expenses. Strollers, pets on leashes and walkers are welcome for the rain or shine race, which will have water stations along the way. Awards will be given for the top finishers in each age category. The race also includes a Kids Dash for younger runners, which is a shorter course of a quarter mile. – CE
