Run, Suwanee, Run
Runners in the 9th annual Suwanee Day Classic, scheduled for Saturday, September 12, have their choice of two routes. Participants may choose from a 5K route through historic Old Town or a 10K course along the Suwanee Creek Greenway.
Both races begin and end at Town Center Park, located at the intersection of Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road and Buford Highway. The 10K begins at 8 a.m., with 5K runners taking off at 8:30 a.m.
The 2009 Suwanee Day Classic, which will be held the week before the annual Suwanee Day festival on September 19, is organized by BodyPlex Fitness Adventure with sponsorship support from Optimum Health and Suwanee Family Dentistry.
All runners who register by September 5 are guaranteed a race t-shirt; runners who register later will receive t-shirts while supplies last. The entry fee is $18 if received by September 5, and $20 thereafter. Race-day registration begins at 6:30 a.m. at Town Center Park.
A downloadable registration form as well as a link to online registration is available at www.suwaneeday.com/race.html.
Awards will be given to approximately 70 individuals in various age groups as well as to runners ages 12 and under who complete the course.
On your mark…get set…run, Suwanee!
