2017 680 the Fan Tailgate 5K

2016 Tailgate 5K presented by Georgia's Own Credit UnionImportant Event Update:

Due to emergency repairs of a sinkhole on Powers Ferry Road, Saturday's race will now be a one-mile road race. There will not be a 5K. Atlanta Track Club worked closely with the City of Atlanta to hold the 680 the Fan Tailgate 5K as planned, but we have been informed that repairs to the road will be not completed and ready for foot traffic on race morning, The one-mile race will still be included in the Grand Prix Series presented by Piedmont Healthcare. Adjusted start waves are listed below. Please listen closely to instructions on race morning for further details.

Some call it the "dog days" of summer, but we think it's the perfect time for a 5K! Enjoy this scenic and challenging course around beautiful Chastain Park while celebrating the coming football season and your favorite team. The 2017 Tailgate 5K is the 7th event in the 2017 Atlanta Track Club Grand Prix Series.
