ABOUT THE RACE
Join us for the 7th annual Suwanee Half Marathon and Old Town 5k on 02/21/21 presented by Performance Race Services along with the City of Suwanee. These races will benefit the Suwanee Public Arts program.

If you register day of, shirts will need to be picked up after race to make sure all preregistered runners receive their shirts and there are no guarantees we will have your size left.
TIME CUT OFF - There will be a 3:30 cut off time for official results, starting from the half marathon start time of 7:30 (so 11:00 AM cut off). Any runner on the course after this time will be considered a pedestrian and you will need to move to the sidewalk.
As with any race, volunteers are always needed. Please use the sign up link on the left side of the registration page for Volunteers registration. We and the runners will appreciate you being there! For volunteering you will receive breakfast, after race food and some race swag.
Half: We are having 10 second waves (with faster runners in front) of 5-10 people. This will allow for some spread initially. We are having little bottles of water instead of cups to avoid and contamination (runners are expected to throw in the trash cans about 100 yards away from the aid station or keep till the next aid station) We will have sealed food at the end along with sealed drinks too. All volunteers will have masks
5k: Start will be on Main Street by the library. We have both lanes so it will be easy to spread out. We will NOT have an aid station at the half point to avoid more people on the course (there will be drinks at the end). Same after run food and awards as the half
Course Certification GA19018DJ ** Unfortunately the back up course is not certified if the greenway is flooded.
HALF MARATHON COURSE
The Suwanee Half Marathon course will still start at Suwanee Town Center, bring you up to and down PIB, in and around George Pierce Park, on the greenway to McGinnis Ferry, back onto the greenway (going under McGinnis Ferry) to Suwanee Creek Park. You will then turn around just before the hill by the bathroom, return back on the greenway, all the way back onto the boardwalk bridge and back to the start by City Hall. USATF Course Certified: GA19018DJ
(Please see interactive map below)
Old Town 5k Course
The 5k will start on Main Street next to the library. (This is to reduce any runner flow restrictions going under the train tunnel and to allow for a joint finish line with the half marathon.) The 5k will follow the same first mile of the half, but split off half way up Eva Kennedy onto Brushy Creek Way. Don't forget to look around about mile 2.25 and enjoy Old Town Suwanee (amazing how much Suwanee has changed) while you return back down main street and back to City Hall. You can see the course using this link (it does show long but Map My Run does not take the complete tangents):
