2024 AthFest Educates 5K

November 2, 2024

Bring your friends and family to enjoy this family-friendly run! A 5K is a great event to involve the whole family.

The 5K takes place on Saturday, November 2, 2024 at 2:30 PM. The start line for the 5K is on Foundry Street right in front of The Classic Center Pavilion, which is where we’ll also be holding the AthHalf Health and Fitness Expo on Saturday, Nov. 2nd. The course makes a loop and runners will enjoy a run through downtown, Athens’ historic Boulevard neighborhood, and down Prince Avenue before finishing back in front of The Classic Center Pavilion.

Registered runners can find all pertinent race information here. (Updated Runner Packet coming soon)

Runners will be supported with a water station at approximately 1.5 miles into the course, cheering fans, and bathrooms can be found near the finish line inside The Classic Center. There will be no first aid on the course.


The AthHalf 5K is scheduled during prime fall weather! In November, average monthly temperatures range between 50 degrees and 76 degrees, while rainfall totals average around just 3.2 inches for the month.
