21st Annual Adams Realtors Run for the Park 5K Scheduled for August 26th
Monday, July 31st, 2023
The 21st edition of the Adams Realtors Run for the Park will take place on Saturday, August 26, starting and ending at Zoo Atlanta. Run for the Park ushers in the Summer Shade Festival, a yearly event organized by the Grant Park Conservancy. Both events raise funds for the Grant Park Conservancy, a nonprofit organization that works to restore and maintain historic Grant Park, Atlanta’s oldest city park.
The race course begins and ends at the Zoo Atlanta parking lot on Cherokee Avenue and follows a scenic route on the streets bordering Grant Park, along with a loop through North Grant Park. The course was recertified by a representative of USA Track and Field this year and counts as a Peachtree Road Race Qualifier
This year’s race logo highlights The Daffodil Project, in which Grant Park is participating. The Daffodil Project is a nonprofit working to plant 1.5 million daffodils worldwide to represent the children killed in the holocaust. Congregation Bet Haverim, in conjunction with the Grant Park Conservancy, has already planted more than 2,000 daffodil bulbs.
Pre-registration for the race is open now through August 25, 2023. Race day registration will be available beginning at 7 a.m. This year’s 5K will begin at 8 a.m. and is open to walkers, runners and strollers. It also will feature a free Trot for Tots race for children 5 and under starting at 8:45 a.m. The race is rain or shine. More event and registration information is available here.
Four sponsorship packages are available — platinum, gold, silver and bronze – but donations for Run for the Park are also welcome to support the Grant Park Conservancy. Please visit Adams Realtors’ website for more information on sponsorship packages.
