Half Marathon and Thanksgiving Day 5K
The Atlanta Half Marathon and Thanksgiving Day 5K attracts thousands of runners and walkers eager to share in the holiday spirit and give thanks for their health and fitness. Held every Thanksgiving, runners take to the streets to challenge themselves before heading home to feast. Starting at Turner Field, runners will have the opportunity to explore the local communities on courses that take them throughout the surrounding neighborhoods.
With prizes and awards for the top finishers, as well as plenty of swag for all participants, the Atlanta Half Marathon and Thanksgiving Day 5K is the perfect way to kick off your holiday.
Runners in both the half marathon and 5K races will be starting and finishing their races at Turner Field, home of the Atlanta Braves. Both courses will send runners on routes that will take participants throughout the areas surrounding the stadium. There will be plenty of free parking available, but public transportation is also a good idea.
