Starlight Stride 5K

Starlight Stride 5K Run/Walk benefitting the Atlanta Children’s Shelter

Piedmont Park. Saturday, 8:30 p.m. $30 until 5/31; $35 on race day.

Support the Atlanta Children’s Shelter by running or walking the Starlight Stride 5K.  This 5K is different than your typical race, though.  It’s at night and will feature glow in the dark t-shirts, a lighted path and plenty of foods and fluids! For those that want to support the cause but can’t come, there is also the opportunity to become a phantom runner/walker by choosing the “Please don’t make me sweat…I support the cause…please mail my shirt.” option.  Money raised will help fund the expansion of the Shelter’s Midtown location.
