5K Run/Walk/ Wheelchair

For those of you who might be frightened by the thought of a 5K race, rest assured – it’s only 3.1 miles running or walking, and 5000 meters if you’re wheelchair racing. It’s the perfect starting point for a beginner!

All the races will begin and end in front of Suwanee City Hall.
