2021 Jerome Scales Southside 10K

2021 Jerome Scales Southside 10K

Join Atlanta Track Club, in partnership with the South Fulton Running Partners, for the first stop in the 2021 Grand Prix Series at the Jerome Scales Southside 10K. Due to complications at the previous venue, we are moving the event to McIntosh Reserve Park (1046 W McIntosh Cir, Whitesburg, GA 30185).


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 .
