Jerome Scales was a longtime member of Atlanta Track Club who served on its Board of Directors for seven years. Diagnosed with tonsil cancer in 2016, he died on June 20, 2019.

Jerome was a fixture in the Atlanta running community, spreading his love for running to anyone nearby. Even after he was diagnosed, he never let the disease deter him from running or from influencing others to do the same. He adopted the motto "one mile at a time," and focused on finding joy in the journey of running regardless of how far or how fast.

Atlanta Track Club is honoring his memory by renaming this event the Jerome Scales Southside 10K . Scales was an employee of Delta Air Lines. After hearing about his impact on the Club, community and employees.
