Third Annual Run the Ridge 5K

  • WHEN: Saturday, February 29, 2020
  • WHERE: The Ridge Nature Area – 415 Burch Road Fayetteville, Georgia 30215
Enjoy a run through the beautiful scenery that Fayetteville has to offer. The trail is mostly flat and gentle, following the outside perimeter of the park and the banks of Gingercake Creek and Whitewater Creek. You can expect a few hills but gentle, non-technical trails. This is a great course for a beginning trail runner. Walkers are also welcome, baby joggers are not advised, dogs on leashes are welcome.


All registrants will receive a race t-shirt. Sign up by February 7 to guarantee your size.


All proceeds from the Run The Ridge 5K go towards the Southern Conservation Trust’s environmental education efforts and nature preserves in Georgia. Register today to be a hero for nature!
