Half Marathon CourseThe Divas Half Marathon & 5K in Peachtree City is the belle of our Diva events and home to the TV show Drop Dead Diva. And we just could not resist but to host one of our Diva runs here! And besides, it does not get much more beautiful than this very active running community with all its charm and southern hospitality. The course begins and ends at Shakerag Knoll at the McIntosh Trail Recreation Complex in the heart of Peachtree City. The run will begin right in the park and head out onto the beautiful tree lined streets. This route will take you on a tour of the southern outdoor charm you envision when you think of Georgia. And did you know that Peachtree City is the Golf Cart Path capital of the world? Now you do and you will get to experience some of those paths meandering through town and giving you a very picturesque and private running experience which local runners have been enjoying for years. This route has slight elevation but it is mostly flat and canopied. And as in a true Diva run you will enjoy our “Diva stations” along the way, including our famous Boa and Tiara station.
This amazing 5K course was designed to bring you the best of Peachtree City. If you are not yet ready for the 13.1 challenge but you are a running diva or a diva lover (for all the handsome casanovas), this race is is for you. Enjoy a great run and an amazing and empowering experience or support the leading lady in your life!
