Atlanta Track Club is absolutely wonderful about promoting an active lifestyle for all members of the family. While the 4-Miler was the most popular event of the morning, there was also a 1-Mile and 50m Dash. I will tell you, it was pumping at packet pick up with so many runners ready to get 2016 started! Thank you to the awesome volunteers and Atlanta Track Club staff who got everyone trough packet pickup quickly. There was also a great DJ getting everyone pumped and ready to go along with tons and tons of port-o-potties (always a great sight!).
My absolute favorite part of this race (aside from the not-as-hilly course) is the awesome course support. A lot of the course is through neighborhoods in Brookhaven and a lot of residents come out and cheer for runners in a grand New Year fashion. You got that right, the silly NYE headgear and noise makers come out in full force to cheer the approximately 1800 runners along the course. I am sure some of the neighbors weren't too keen on it, but it made for great support!
