The RUN FOR ANGELS is our largest fundraiser since its inception in 2003. With both the 5K and 10K courses being certified as PEACHTREE ROAD RACE QUALIFIERS (USATF 10K A0400WC), the RUN FOR ANGELS is now a highly respected and well-attended event attracted hundreds of participants from all over the southeast last year! ORION RACING, will once again, professionally manage our 2017 race using the latest RFID disposable start and finish chip-timing technology to ensure the most accurate instant finish times possible! These precise times will be displayed on a flat screened television at the finish line. This system will also allow us to prepare for our awards ceremony quickly! Race times will be emailed to participants in the 5K and 10K races and be available on our website! (Please note that we will use gun time to calculate awards results based on USATF Rule 245.)
Guaranteed Run T Shirt if registered by January 24th!
