Please join us for the 2nd. Annual “Red Top Road Race 5K at LakePoint Sports."  Race day is Saturday morning, March 19, 2022 at 8:30 AM. 

Come and be a part of this amazing year 2 5K that follows the new LakePoint Parkway that connects the LakePoint Sports Complex to Red Top Mountain Rd. Departing from the LakePoint Sports South Campus, you’ll get to experience the tremendous views of the surrounding North Georgia mountains as this race route flows along one of the newest and most scenic roadways in all of Northern GA.  The challenge comes early with an initial quick climb that will take you up to a relatively flat 2 mile stretch of racing! But what goes up, must come down… as you’ll enjoy an awesome decline straight to the finish!  Runners and Walkers of all levels are welcome and this is a Rain or Shine event.
