With All Comers, the name says it all: they are open to everyone, no prior experience or team membership required. It's a great chance to learn about this branch of the sport, get some fun exercise, or work on sharpening your skills. With a range of participants from toddlers to Olympians, it's fun to watch as well.

Kilometer Kids Decathlon
Kids of all ages will have a chance to win some great incentive prizes based on the number of events they participate in over the seven weeks of the All Comers series. Several of Atlanta Track Club's Kilometer Kids groups/schools will use the All Comers meets to log extra miles toward their goal of running 26.2 miles over 11 weeks each spring.
While all events are hand timed, results are not recorded.
