The Sickle Cell 5K Road Race/Walk is a major attraction for runners! The race is foremost a charitable event, with proceeds supporting our nonprofit mission and programs of the Sickle Cell Foundation of Georgia, Inc. (SCFG).
SCFG serves people affected by sickle cell disease and sickle cell trait — both are genetic blood disorders.
We will assemble at 8:00 a.m. and the Race/Walk starts at 9:00 a.m. For neighborhood planning purposes, event set up will begin at 6:00 a.m. and will conclude at 3:00 p.m. This event will necessitate temporary lane closures and will impact traffic patterns. We advise neighbors, especially in the downtown East Point area, to use alternative paths in and out.
Participants will run the comfortable 5K (3.1 miles) course through beautiful and historic downtown East Point and the city’s diverse communities. While in town, everyone will get a glimpse of the New City Hall and downtown growth, convenient transit, neighborhood charm, hospitality, and robust businesses, which the City of East Point offers. The 5K run is chip timed, the course is certified, and it’s a Peachtree Road Race qualifier. Rain or shine, our event will go on!
