The excitement and line up for the race begins in Midtown just outside Midtown Marta station. There is very limited car parking in the area, so we do recommend Marta Rail.

Gear Check for the Half Marathon - Look for the U-haul Truck on Peachtree Walk at the Start Line to drop your bag. Bag Check closes at 7:45 am.

Then, to line up, look for your specific color corral (blue, green, red) for line up to start the race.
