The Run

A Run To Benefit The Community Welcome House

Run a 5k through the “City of Homes” and enjoy the lush fall landscape and beauty surrounding this historic part of Newnan, GA.

Or participate in the 1k fun run and traverse the paved paths within the Park.

When finished, stay for a post-race celebration, browse the booths of the Community Health Fair, and grab some eats from the yummy food vendors.

Bringing the kids? No problem, lots of fun for them too!

When you participate in this 5k road race and 1k fun run, you will help support The Community Welcome House, a safe haven for women and children whose mission is to inspire hope and empower survivors of domestic violence.

Come dressed in purple, the color for ‘Domestic Violence Awareness’ or sport a dragonfly, symbolizing ‘New Beginnings.’ Prizes will be given for Best Themed Costume.
