Garden Gallop 5k – Kennesaw Grand Prix 5K Series

October 8, 2022 @ 6:30 am - 11:00 am

It’s never too early to show off your Halloween costume!
Plus, all runners enjoy free admission to Smith-Gilbert Gardens on
Saturday, October 8 after the Race. SGG is open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. – just bring your race bib!

The Kennesaw Grand Prix series is the premier 5K race series in north Georgia.  Run on a mostly flat and fast asphalt course through downtown Kennesaw. Each of the six races is professionally timed and USAT&F Certified.  The course is perfect for competitive runners seeking a qualifying time for the Peachtree Road Race. But the festival-like atmosphere and plentiful food and drink make these races perfect for beginner runners/walkers as well as families.
