Both the half and full takes runners and walkers on a route through some of the city's most historical landmarks and scenic areas showing off its tree lined streets and its authentic southern charm. Publix Atlanta Marathon Weekend has something for the entire family and will show participants near and far why Atlanta is Running City USA. The 5K and youth events take place on Saturday, while the full and half marathons are held on Sunday.
