Kennesaw Grand Prix 5k Runs

The Kennesaw Grand Prix Series is a series of 5k’s run in the city of Kennesaw.  The series is run on a mostly flat and fast asphalt course, professionally timed and USAT&F Certified, through picturesque Downtown Kennesaw and Swift-Cantrell Park. This course is an excellent fit for competitive runners who are looking to qualify 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.

The races are:

  • May 13, 2023: Fit City 5K
  • June 10, 2023: Summer Sun Run 5K
  • September 9, 2023: Harvest Hustle 5K
  • October 28, 2023: Nightmare on Main 5K
Each race begins at the Kennesaw First Baptist Church on Main Street in Downtown Kennesaw. With plentiful parking, restrooms, room to spread out and warm up, the registration and start area helps to get racers ready for a PR race. Each race program includes a one-mile fun run at 7:30 a.m.; the 5K at 8 a.m.; and a Tot Trot at 8:55 a.m. Awards are presented at the after-party on Main Street at 9:15 a.m.  After-party activities include snacks and water for participants, music and local vendors.

All races are electronically timed and awards are presented to the overall Male and Female winners, Male and Female Masters Winners, and the top 3 finishers in 12 age groups.
