Last March more than 1,500 competitors flocked to the world's largest college campus for the 2010 event, and organizers expect an even greater turnout in 2011. Once again, participants will have their choice of three different races: the signature half-marathon, the Viking Classic 10K and a 5K. There will also be a one-mile fun run.
All three races feature electronic timing on courses that are certified by USA Track & Field. Both the half-marathon and the 10K are official qualifiers for Atlanta's Peachtree Road Race. Walkers are welcome in all races.
Registration for the half-marathon is $55 through Dec. 31. On Jan. 1, 2011, registration goes up to $65 and after Feb. 11, the fee is $75. Half-marathon finishers will receive technical shirts and finishing medals. Participants in the other races will receive t-shirts.
