AthHalf

The Athens Half-Marathon and 5k are back for the 9th annual local race weekend. The course is action packed and goes through gorgeous historic districts and The University of Georgia campus. The AthHalf is more than just a race, it’s one of the fundraising events (along with AthFest) for AthFest Educates:

“AthHalf is produced annually by the nonprofit organization, AthFest Educates, supporting its mission of funding high-quality music and arts programming for youth. When you run the AthHalf, you are directly impacting a child’s access to music and the arts.”

And if you can’t run, spectate! There’s nothing better than having your neighbors and friends cheer you on. Register here.

Wild Rumpus

A yearly Halloween celebration complete with our very own Max (of Where The Wild Things Are) to get the festivities started. With people coming from far and wide, The Wild Rumpus is a great event to participate in, or spectate as a family! With the main event being a costume-clad parade, the whole weekend is jam-packed with events. Stay tuned here for the event schedule.
