KGP 5K: Nightmare on Main 5K
The Kennesaw Grand Prix Series is the premier 5K race series in North Georgia. The course is mostly asphalt and is flat and fast. The race begins at Kennesaw First Baptist Church, heads north on Main Street, meanders through Swift-Cantrell Park, and finishes in historic downtown Kennesaw. Runners will cross the finish line into a post-race party for the awards ceremony and celebration.
Each of the races is professionally timed and USAT&F Certified. The course is perfect for competitive runners seeking a qualifying time for the Peachtree Road Race. The festival-like atmosphere and plentiful food and drink make these races perfect for beginner runners and walkers as well as families.
The four 5K runs are part of the Fit City Kennesaw initiative which encourages residents to become more active and engage in wellness-related activities.
