Race Day info
Happy race week runners! Thank you all so much for coming out this Saturday to Southsides Fastest 5K. It’s the first year for this race and we’re are crazy excited about it and we hope that you have a great race day experience! 100% of the proceeds go to Henry County Caner Services!! Here are a few notes before race day to help answer some questions.
Local time: 1:56 AM
Early hoodie and number p/u is @ NEWSOLE Running store in McDonough (1315 McDonough Parkway, McDonough GA) from 12-6pm Friday. If you ordered after the hoodie deadline we’ll try to get you a hoodie but if not you’ll get a Revolution Running t-shirt.
Packet p/u the morning of the race starts @ 7am.
The 5K starts @ 8am.
The race is at North Mt. Carmel Park (soccer complex). Go through the main entrance and then drive all the way to the back pavilion where there is plenty of parking; it’s not an issue.
There will be 3 port-o-potties by the start finish line and a few scattered around the park. The concession bathrooms will be open too.
Once the 5K is complete we will do the awards ceremony; it’s typically about an hour after the start. Awards will be for overall male/ female, masters male/ female and then top 3 male and female 10-under, 11-19, 20-24… and every 5 years until 65+.
The course will be marked @ every turn and confidence flags along the course. The course has less than 40 feet of gain. You’ll start @ the back pavilion and then run to the paved trail inside the park. Once out of that you’ll run out of the park and south on North Mt. Carmel Park (it’s a slight uphill for about ¾ of a mile) then you’ll do a loop inside the neighborhood and then follow the exact same course back to the start/ finish line.
After the race we’ll have pancakes for all runners too!
Stop by and thank our sponsors on race day! Altra Running, NEWSOLE Running, Jailhouse Brewing Company, JMC HOMES, Jennifer Simmons Photography, Bohland Family& Sports Chiropractic, Advocare- Annie Randolph, Edward Jones, Crossfit locust Grove & Proactive Rehab Inc.
