Description

We are excited to be teaming up with WOOFSTOCK and The Humane Society of Forsyth County for the 2024 Hacker Run & Dog Dash 5k. Join us for the run/walk and then stick around for a fun day at the Cumming City Center! The 5k is also a PEACHTREE QUALIFIER!

The HACKER RUN 5k is in memory of Jeffrey Hacker, who passed away suddenly after a 5k in June 2019. Jeff was an avid supporter of his community in Forsyth County, as well as a runner and sponsor of many Forsyth County races. Jeffrey's wife, Kimberly, along with North GA Running Co. has high hopes of the Hacker Run 5k being a huge race each year to honor Jeff and keep his memory alive in the community where he was a proud member. LIVE LIKE JEFF! Donations from the race will be distributed the Humane Society of Forsyth County, which Jeff was passionate about supporting.

For my husband...Jeffrey Hacker...in honor of you today and every day. May we all aspire to be like you! Humble...Kind...Strong. 
~Kimberly Hacker
