One of the southeast’s premier distance events, the Publix Georgia Marathon, Half Marathon & 5K return to celebrate the 12th running of the Atlanta tradition!
Sunday | March 18th, 2018
For the first time since 2016, the 5K option is back by popular demand! Approximately 18,000 runners will participate in this year’s races, coursing through some of the most notable areas of Atlanta with spectacular skyline views and historic locations. The full marathon continues from Downtown through Midtown, Little Five Points, Decatur, Druid Hills, and the Virginia Highlands.
In addition to the Pace Team, several bands will also be performing throughout the course to help runners keep motivated and reach their goals!
Following the race, Marathon and Half Marathon awards will be given across various age and gender groups. All participants are encouraged to take MARTA on race morning to avoid traffic delays due to race related street closures.
