If you’re looking for something crazy, something extraordinary, something that will shock your world – look no further than the Area 13.1 and Terrestrial 5k race taking place on August 19, 2017 in Roswell, Georgia, in the dark!
This race is loaded with fun, aliens, lights, fancy finisher medals, and secret colored race shirts. Awards are out of this world (literally- ask last year’s winners) for 1st place male/female overall and masters and finisher medals for all half-marathon and 5K’ers. No bikes, dogs, and whining on the course as it gets dark in some places even with the light towers. There are aid stations at every mile for Gu, Water, porta johns, and most importantly, to replenish your energy from evading the aliens. Lastly, race is chip timed so it’ll record how fast you race through the course to escape those pesky spaceships!
Not only do you get to experience the thrills of escaping an alien invasion, but you also get to support a great cause! Proceeds from the race go to support Bwanali Chipole Victory, Inc, a non-profit organization in Malawi, Africa which provides food and education to over 140 children and is building a dormitory to shelter 150 young girls.
The Area 13.1 and Terrestrial 5k race has garnered astounding reviews from runners and race websites. Not only is this race one of the most popular in Georgia, but it is also ranked in the top 10 flattest and fastest courses on the East Coast by Halfmarathons.net.
